Buddhist Dictionary by NYANATILOKA MAHATHERA
ānantarika-kamma:This term seems to be used for the first time in Kath. (190) of the Abh. Canon; the 5 crimes mentioned,however,are already enumerated and explained in the old Sutta texts (e.g. A.V,129),as is to be seen from the main part of this work.
Buddhist Dictionary by NYANATILOKA MAHATHERA
ānantarika-kamma:the 5 heinous 'actions with immediate destiny' are:parricide,matricide,killing an Arahat (Saint),wounding a Buddha,creating schism in the monks' Order. In A.V.,129 it is said:

"There are 5 irascible and incurable men destined to the lower world and to hell,namely:the parricide," etc. About the 5th see A. X.,35,38. With regard to the first crime,it is said in D. 2 that if King Ajātasattu had not deprived his father of life,he would have reached entrance into the path of Stream-entry (App.).
