Where in the Suttas does the Buddha talk about the 5 Niyama?

Postby Wizard in the Forest » Thu Jan 13, 2011 10:26 pm

I have read the Niyama Dipani and I would like to know from where in the suttas do the ideas of the 5 cosmic orders originate?

If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'll be extremely grateful.

plwk: Thank you, and to The OP, for this. I wasn't aware of The Dhamma Niyamas.

What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.

Hehehehe, most people are aware of kamma/vipaka as an expression of dependent origination, but aren't aware of the other cosmic orders. I have read the Niyama Dipani and so I asked for that reason. It's a lesser known teaching.
