a Buddhist Sanskrit word describing
the stopping of the process sustaining conditioned states
and self-realization of Nirvana the unconditioned state.

Nirvana is the completion of the path of Buddhism, where the real is won
via self-enlightenment and the incomparable self-awakening
and all delusion and anguish are permanently ended
even before death in this state. 

Who sees Emptiness, sees the Buddha
Who sees the Buddha, sees the Dharma
Who sees the Dharma, sees Nirvana
Who sees Nirvana, sees the Deathless
Who sees the Deathless is One who is Awake
