Buddhist Dictionary by NYANATILOKA MAHATHERA
niyata-puggala:a 'person with a fixed destiny',may be either one who has committed one of the 5 'heinous deeds with immediate result' (ānantarika-kamma,q.v.),or one who follows 'wrong views with fixed destiny' (niyata-micchā-diṭṭhi,q.v.),or one who has reached one of the 4 stages of holiness (s.ariya-puggala).About the latter cf.the frequent passage:Those disciples in whom the 3 fetters (of personality-belief,sceptical doubt and attachment to mere rules and ritual; s.saṃyojana) have vanished,they all have entered the stream,have forever escaped the states of woe; fixed is their destiny (niyata),assured their final enlightenment."
