 Was the Tsunami Caused by Karma? - A Buddhist View
Niyama is a Pali term (language of early Buddhism) for cosmic order.
Although Buddhism teaches that Kamma is the chief cause of the inequalities in the world yet it does not teach fatalism or the doctrine of predestination, for it does not hold the view that everything is due to past actions.
The law of causes described in Buddhist philosophy is one of the five orders (Niyamas) which are laws in themselves and operate in the universe.

Yama and Niyama are often called "the Ten Commandments of Yoga." Each one of these Five Don'ts (Yama) and Five Do's (Niyama) is a supporting, liberating Pillar of Yoga.
These ten restraints (yama) and observances (niyama) are not optional for the aspiring yogi-or for the most advanced yogi, either.
But at the same time, the practice of yoga helps the aspiring yogi to follow the necessary ways of yama and niyama, so he should not be discouraged from taking up yoga right now, thinking that he should wait till he is "ready" or has "cleaned up his act" to practice yoga.

 The Niyama
In one Sutta this niyama is referred to as 'the establishing, the fixity of things as effects'(Dhammatthitata Dhammaniyamata): 'Because of ignorance comes kamma: now whether, O bhikkhus, Tathagatas arise, or whether they do not arise, this element (dhatu) stands, namely, the establishment of Dhamma as effects, the fixity of Dhamma as effects.
But in the classification of niyama, the individual names are used for the first four so as to particularize and make distinction from the rest of things, mentals and materials, which are conveniently treated under one common name of 'Dhamma'.
When it is required to treat 'utu' as niyama, one should not call it a 'Dhamma-niyama' though it (utu) is really a Dhamma, but must use the appropriate and individual name and call it an utu-niyama.

 The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
Most translators translates niyama as “observances.” It could also be seen as “cultivations.” Coupled with the yama, niyama is likened to the Ten Commandments or ethical precepts.
If Hatha Yoga is used as a metaphor, the yama would be the “ha” and niyama would be the “tha.” “Ha” meaning “sun” is the active or doing portion and “tha” meaning “moon” is the being aspect of that form of Yoga.
It is very difficult to let go of these timeworn beliefs that have shaped whom we are for decades, many of which were formed before we developed our language skills and some are based on century old beliefs from our lineage.
