If being a stream-enterer (SE) means being released from the first three fetters, how does one know one's released from the first three fetters?

And:

Wouldn't a true SE not need outside verification?

Again,

How does one know one's released from the first three fetters?

And:

Wouldn't a true stream-enterer not need outside verification?

From whose perspective? :roll:
Rain soddens what is covered up,
It does not sodden what is open.
Therefore uncover what is covered
That the rain will not sodden it.

That was my point.

It does not sodden what is open.
Therefore uncover what is covered
That the rain will not sodden it.

Indeed. Even Buddha and arahants declared about themselves that they are arahants, best in the world, fully enlightened. And not because of conceit, but because of the truth. For example, I can say that I'm a professional in this or that area. That can be no conceit but just a declaration of the truth.
