Nirvana Buddhism

 

 

Nirvana Buddhism is a state of living where mind remains free from any wrong thoughts as anger, lust or worldly cravings. Thus Nirvana Buddhism is a mode of living where mind and soul remains in complete peace and solitude. In Buddhism Nirvana is described as ‘deathless’. Nirvana is not a state of physical or worldly happiness rather it is spiritual happiness which is consistent and immortal.

Thus Nirvana is an ultimate state of life:

Buddhists call it as ‘Enlightenment’. The attainment of Nirvana frees one from countless reincarnations. In fact Nirvana could never be described it is something which can only be felt by them who attain it sincerely. In Mahayana Buddhism Nirvana is considered as opposite of ‘Samsara’ the Theravada school describes Nirvana as the beginning of complete chase of liberation. The experience of nirvana cannot be felt by all the six senses (Eye, Ear, Nose, Tongue, Body and Mind). The Nirvana Buddhism is a congregate of two words nir+ vana, where ‘nir’ denotes freedom and ‘vana’ means path of rebirth.
