A Quote by Sir William Hamilton on nirvana


Nirvana is an experience of the Unconditioned which defies any description.  Any description of Nirvana is not a description of Nirvana, and that is the most that can be said about Nirvana.  There are no reference points in Nirvana on which to base a description.

William Hamilton (1788 - 1856)

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on god and nirvana

If you touch the phenomenal realm deeply, you touch the ultimate realm which is the realm of no birth and no death.  The ultimate is nirvana, it is God, and it is available to us twenty four hours a day.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on ignorance, mind, pain, thought, rebirth, cycle, builder, house, rafter, ridge-pole, free, active, craving, freedom, liberation, and nirvana

I have passed in ignorance through a cycle of many rebirths, seeking the builder of the house. Continuous rebirth is a painful thing. But now, housebuilder, I have found you out. You will not build me a house again. All your rafters are broken, your ridge-pole shattered. My mind is free from active thought, and has made an end of craving.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)
