Clearheaded belief in a fact

A constructive emotion that is clear about a fact and, like a water purifier, clears the mind of disturbing emotions and attitudes about the object or in general – for instance, being clear about the good qualities of one's spiritual teachers or the great Buddhist masters of the past and, admiring them, having indecisive wavering about the path and mental distress cleared away.
