Buddhist Dictionary

by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:

phala: lit. 'fruit'. - 1. result, effect (often together with hetu, cause ); 2. benefit (e.g. in Sāmañña-phala Sutta, 'The Results, or Benefits, of Recluseship'; DN 2).

As 'path-result', or 'fruition', it donotes those moments of supermundane consciousness which flash forth immediately after the moment of path-consciousness (see ariya-puggala) and which, till the attainment of the next higher path, may during the practice of insight (see vipassanā) still recur innumerable times. If thus repeated, they are called the 'attainment of fruition (phalasamāpatti), which is explained in detail in Visuddhi Magga XXIII.
