Reply To: Nibbana after Sakadagami or Anagami


These are what are called “dhamma niyāmatā.”

  • A Sotapanna WILL attain Arahanthood within seven bhava.
  • A Sakadagami WILL be born in ma loka only once (in a Deva realm.)
  • An Anāgāmi WILL attain Arahanthood in the suddhāvāsa (rupāvacara Brahm realms reserved for Anāgāmis.)

This is why Buddhas can also predict when a Bodhisatta with “niyata vivarana” will become a Buddha at a specific time.
