Expand Your Vocab

Remember my post on pain and suffering? If not, you can read it in all it's glory here.

The Buddha taught about Nirvana, which is basically a state of perfection, a state of absolute Enlightenment. In Sanskrit, the word loosely translates to "extinguishing", which we take to mean extinguishing the dukkha (suffering) and entering Ultimate Enlightenment.

"I teach one thing and one thing only, suffering and the end of suffering."
-The Buddha
