Actual attainment

A significant spiritual goal that one actually attains or, literally, "makes actual" or "makes real" on one's mental continuum. The common actual attainments, shared with non-Buddhists, refer to extraphysical powers (the eight actual attainments), while the supreme actual attainment refers to enlightenment.
