Four realizations:

1. By the body one realizes the (first) 8 Jhanas

2. By memory one realizes one's prior lives in all diverse detail

3. By the divine eye one realizes the death and rebirth of beings

4. By understanding one realizes elimination of the mental fermentations

(from Anguttara Nikaya II. 182)
