    Nirvana/Nibbana/Englightenment/Deliverance/Being savid, this can be an 'aha' moment for some and coming to a gradual understanding for others. Basically IMHO, it is understanding the ways of the world and our relation to it. Tariki said absence of greed, hatred and delusion; which is true; because till these emotions are eradicated, a person would never be truly happy.

    Nirvana? :)


    Life is suffering.......... see buddhanet.net

    Nirvana is the End of suffering. That mean, by my opinon the End of life in any form. The End of life in this world and in spiritual worlds too.

    Do you mean a new life where there are no illnesses , death sorrow? An ascended being. If so I agree.

    Or something which can remove the pinch of illnesses, death, sorrow, a better understanding of life and world. You do not have to ascend, climb any mountains, you can be very much here, in life.

    I wouldn't know anything about that in this life, most of my life is spent with going over what I have done wrong and an explanation as to why. I could never be HERE in state state of nirvana but only achieve it thru union with my own divine self.

    Nirvana means "cessation"

    There is no more any dissonance in you.
    You are no more in dissonance with the whole.

    Moksha is the opposite.

    Now there is resonance in you.
    Now you are in resonance with the whole.

    Wait.

    Eh, technically.

    Duality is retarded.

    The self thinks it can attain Nirvana,like it thinks it can attain a house or car,When the dream of "i " (ego)....is seen as an illusion. its realised there is nothing to attain.

    How can you eradicate emotions when your not creating them?
