Q&A: What happens after the nine stages of meditation?

Master Culadasa describes the levels of development after the meditation stages that lead to shamata. Specifically he describes the 7 stages (seven purifications) that start at shamata and end with awakening. The last seven purifications are further divided into 16 knowledges. Finally, he demonstrates the correlation between the five path system with the stages of purification system. (He goes into more detail regarding insight in a subsequent question.)
