The concept of nirvana is used freely in the West these days, people have interpreted the word “nirvana” to mean a pleasureable, blissful state, however in Buddhism there are different ways of looking at nirvana, depending on the context within which we are trying to realize or attain it.

The Nirvanic state we will attain or realize is determined by what practises we are doing and with what purpose. The traditional view within Buddhism is that there are many different states of nirvana, we do not attain one single nirvana, there are many different kinds.

From the samsaric perspective, the Buddhist path begins with the recognition of suffering. It is not merely the pointed suffering of sickness, aging or death, but that vague feeling of anxiety and dissatisfaction that seems to underlie every moment of our lives.

Buddhism refers to this repetitive or cyclic experience as dukka, and the bad news is that it’s all pervasive and universal. The good news is that this is where the genuine spiritual journey begins.
