Greetings,

Nibbana is unconditioned, beyond measure... how can there be "10 levels" of it?

Are you able to provide a link so we can see what is said for ourselves?

Thanks.

Metta,
Retro. :)

I doubt very much whether the Sayadaw said that, Villkorkamma.
kind regards,

Ben

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Searching "The Way to Ultimate Calm" by Webu Sayadaw for the word "ten", the closest thing I can find is the ten paramis. I haven't heard of anybody except a bodhisatta completely realizing any of the paramis. Of course nearly everybody has some amount of patience, etc.

If you need a way to look at your progress, you should find a good teacher.
