The State of Nirvana

According to the beliefs of many religions of oriental origin, the Nirvana is translated like the cessation of the suffering, and represents the state of relaxation that results from the elimination of all the desires, reached opium the different meditation methods.

The term Nirvana has his origin of the Sanskrit one and means “calmness“ or “quietude“.ahora well if we speak about the Nirvana in one religious context, this term is used usually in religions hindúes like the jainismo, the Hinduism and the Buddhism, for the purpose of there indicates the state in which no type of mental activity takes place, what will mean the liberation of the spirit. But according to the religious context in which it is placed the Nirvana possesses different types of implications. The religions hinduistas and Buddhists usually use the word Nirvana as synonymous of calmness, what implies that the person who goes so far as to experience the Nirvana is compared with the flame of a subdued fire, this is due to the fact that all the desires, thoughts, emotions, needs and sensations, they eliminate what implies that the Nirvana really is not the state, but it is a question of an absolute truth that it should be experienced by every person. There are current practices, which can go so far as to bring us over to the Nirvana state but without the need that the same ones have a religious suppressed high place; for example, the Reiki or the study on the metaphysics can help us to realize an advance to the lighting of the conscience, that is to say that the experience of the Nirvana is perfectly possible by means of the work and the study on one himself.

Nirvana hinduista

Nirvana - monje-budistaThe Nirvana is a the state of liberation of the suffering and the connotation that is given him is that this experience is the only capable one of extinguishing the internal fire that the strong negative emotions provoke, breaking the transmigration cycle that, without the help of the Nirvana it would be anything eternal. In the Hinduism, the Nirvana speaks about the union with absolute Me, for it the fact is that this experience aims at that should realize an event of interior peace and at the smelting of the soul with the absolute divinity. On the other hand, the Nirvana hinduista takes the basic concept of liberation of a different way for every Hindu creed.

For example, the Vaishnavas think that the Nirvana as method of union with God it cannot be carried out since what it is necessary to achieve is that our soul serves to the divinity and not that it fuses with her, for this reason this is the only branch hinduista that does not practise the experience Nirvana since they prefer to serve to God instead of fusing with, although they have to cross for different sufferings. The nature of the Nirvana hinduista has been a debate topic in the Occident, since many students and investigators of the topic support that the Nirvana needs of an entire annihilation although many others give him the meaning as eternal beatitude. These two points of view are causers of several problems; the Nirvana is not anything that really it is possible to describe and it can only be known and be understood if it is experienced.

Nirvana Buddhist

Nirvana - meditationBuddha Gautama, creator of the religion Buddhist, re-defined the use of the Nirvana that is used in the Hinduism by means of a process of meditation that helps to analyze the body and the mind with the characteristic of being lacking of in an intrinsic individuality. In this process there exists a certain gap that appears in the body and in the mind of the person who is carrying out the practice of the Nirvana. If I impede, as the Nirvana hinduista, when the experience of the Nirvana is carried out Buddhists produces to itself a liberation of the suffering caused by the existence of all the states different from reincarnation in which we all are fastened.

But the difference takes root in that the Buddhism will take this idea up to his last consequences. On the other hand it is important that we stand out the fact that many people point out that the Nirvana Buddhist affirms that this practice is the opposite thing to the world as we live through it now, and this is very mistaken since if we analyze it from the point of view of the doctrine Buddhist we will understand that both the gods and the individuals are tied to the Karma, therefore many persons decide to drift apart from the Nirvana state like way of absolute liberation as it is raised by the philosophy that makes a detour to the Nirvana hinduista. Finally we do not want to allow mentioning that the Nirvana Buddhist also indicates the idea of definitive extinction after the death, therefore this religion understands that the Nirvana is not an external purpose but as the meeting with the nature of each one, this one needs a major recognition. Many faithful refer to the Nirvana Buddhist as a brotherhood and an intrinsic and empty condition.
