Sakadāgāmī: 'Once returner'

A sakadagami (once-returner) has eradicated the first three hindrances of the 10 hindrances to enlightenment and greatly weakened the fourth and fifth; attachment to sense desires and ill-will. Such a person will be re-born to either the human or heavenly realm and will attain enlightenment there.

See: 10 hindrances and the Four stages of realization.
