Two kinds of Arahants (I cannot find the correct word in Pali, I merely produce the sound)

1. suk-ka-vi-pas-sa-ka arahantship purely from vipassana
2. sa-ma-dha-ya-nik arahantship who started from samadhi until getting one of the jan-na, then vipassana

Both attain the arahants but the first merely attained through vipassana, the latter was began with samadhi followed by vipassana.
