It seems you agree that right knowledge of the statement do occur to viShNumitra. 

The knowledge process thro which it occurred is called bhAga-tyAga-lakShaNA vRRitti. You call in any other name, does not matter.

In case right knowledge did not occur, please follow the knowledge process bhAga-tyAga-lakShaNa.

Hari Om! Pranipata
