Once-returners do not have only one more rebirth, as the name suggests, for that may not even be said with certainty about the non-returner who can take multiple rebirths in the five "Pure Abodes". They do, however, only have one more rebirth in the realm of the senses, excluding, of course, the planes of hell, animals and hungry ghosts. The non-returner, having overcome sensuality, does not return to the human world, or any unfortunate world lower than that, after death.
The fourth stage is that of Arahant Sanskrit: Arhat , a fully awakened person. In Theravada Buddhism the term Buddha is reserved for ones who "self-enlighten" such as Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, who discovered the path by himself. In this Teaching that is so well proclaimed by me and is plain, open, explicit and free of patchwork; for those who are arahants, free of taints, who have accomplished and completed their task, have laid down the burden, achieved their aim, severed the fetters binding to existence, who are liberated by full knowledge, there is no future round of existence that can be ascribed to them.

One of the strongest examples where silence is used happens when Kibong heads to the city to beg for offerings. He finds himself in the middle of a noisy and busy market.

This state creates a peaceful moment in an otherwise chaotic setting. Koller, This is a narration of the film on the way Kibong returned back from the marketplace to the temple again. This is a famous parable of the Buddha. Author unknown.
