sutra

In original Buddhism, a practitioner who has attained a level of spiritual mastery such that they have “entered the stream” that flows inevitably to nirvana; although it may take more than one additional lifetime (rebirth), a stream-enterer will eventually achieve nirvana. (Subsequent levels of mastery are once-returner, non-returner, and arhat.)
