Ariyā-iddhi (noble power) is the power of controlling one’s ideas in such a way that one may consider something not repulsive as repulsive and something repulsive as not repulsive, and remain all the time imperturbable and full of equanimity. This training of mind is frequently mentioned in the Suttas (e.g. M.152, A.V.144), but only once the name of ariyā-iddhi is applied to it (D.28). See further Pts.M., Iddhi-kathā, Vis.M. XII.
