Right Knowledge and Jaina Dharma

I became aware from studying Jaina Dharma awhile ago that there are
five criteria or types of knowing> From my friend Sancheti Asoo Lal's
book Five Steps to jainism the following:
"Right Knowledge is broadly divided into five categories depending on
the progressive development of the soul or increasing manifestation of
its powers in respect of knowledge or consciousness: These are (1)
Sensory; (2) Study (3) Clairvoyance (4) Telepathy and (5) Omniscience
For theosophists I think this is also a satisfactory approach.
"Nothing is higher than Mount Meru nor anything more expansive than the sky. Similarly know that no Dharma is equal to Ahimsa in this world."
- Bhakta-Parijna: 91
