What is Enlightenment / Nirvana / Samadhi

Enlightenment is continuous, permanent feeling of goodness, happiness with oneself and with every other thing ('non-thing') existing ('non-existing') in this universe / cosmos.

This continuous, permanent happiness, goodness is achieved only through one’s own body and nature.

A person who has achieved Nirvana or Samadhi is totally self reliant. That is, this person is only reliant on his / her own body and nature (natural resources).

A person who has achieved Nirvana, Samadhi, feels good about everything.

As a person who has achieved Nirvana, Samadhi, feels good about everything, this person has only good thoughts and does good acts ('Karma').

A person who has achieved Nirvana, Samadhi, does not need money for survival. This person does not need to purchase anything with money for himself / herself.

A person who has achieved Nirvana, Samadhi, does not need any support.

In a person who has achieved Nirvana, Samadhi, all chemicals are released in balanced proportion.

The difference between a person who has achieved Nirvana, Samadhi, and a person who has not achieved Nirvana or Samadhi is:

A person who has achieved Nirvana, Samadhi, gets continuous and permanent feeling of completeness and is totally satisfied.

While a person who has not achieved Nirvana or Samadhi feels emptiness and is dissatisfied.

Nirvana or Samadhi, can be achieved by a person who wants to become totally self reliant. As they search for total self reliance the chance of
Nirvana, Samadhi in them increases.

  1. Good post, but I would reword it slightly.

    One who has achieved Nirvana/Samadhi/Enlightenment is no longer a person.

    'Person' comes from the word 'persona'. Persona is the masks the Greek actors wore in theater.

    To be a person is to be a fake...not who/what you really are.

  7. Great post! i know a litle about yoga. Astanga vinyasa yoga, or sometimes spelled ashtanga Yoga is actually taught today by a man named Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, in Mysore, India. He has brought astanga yoga to the west about 25 years ago and still teaches today at 91 years of age. Astanga yoga began with the rediscovery of the ancient manuscript Yoga Korunta. It describes a unique system of Hatha yoga as practiced and created by the ancient sage Vamana Rishi.

  10. weblogian, it is not about today's or yesterday's or future world. We can try to have our goal to achieve Nirvana. There are exceptions who achieve complete Nirvana. As we become better and better we are inching towards Nirvana.

  11. Yoga is a traditional system of healing for the mind and body. It means union. It is a popular belief that yoga can cleanse your body of toxins and improve muscle tone, as well as help in blood circulation.
