      Thank you for the post, and an opportunity to learn more Pali terms.

      Anuloma Khanti and Sammattaniyāma – Pre-requisites for a Sotapanna

      We learned before of the 4 conditions for the sotapanna stage:

      Sappurisasaṃsevo
      saddhammassavanaṃ
      yonisomanasikāro
      dhammānudhammappaṭipatti

      Are yonisomanasikāro and dhammānudhammappaṭipatti equivalent to getting to Anuloma Khanti and Sammattaniyāma?

      Thank you.

      Yes. They are equivalent.

      The main requirements:

      Sappurisasaṃsevo
      saddhammassavanaṃ
      yonisomanasikāro
      dhammānudhammappaṭipatti

      will fulfill Anuloma Khanti and Sammattaniyāma.

      The key point is that while fulfilling those 4 conditions one must realize not only the fact that the rebirth process is filled with suffering but also the fact that Nibbana is the only solution.
      See, “Sōtapanna Anugāmi and a Sōtapanna

      I should have mentioned this post. Thanks!

      P.S. I need to update that older post. Hope to do it soon.

      Thank you, Lal.

      I’m now back to reading the posts on the Sotapanna stage, so this is great.

      One more question: what is the breakdown of the word Sammattaniyāma?

      Does it have to do with samma + atta + niyama?

      Good question.

      I have not seen a breakdown. But it could be the following.

      Sama = “same”
      atta = “truth” or “refuge” or “Nibbana” depending on the context
      niyama = principle or law
      When you put all that together it rhymes like “Sammattaniyāma.”

      So, when someone gets to Sammattaniyāma one “starts taking refuge in Nibbana.”
