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

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.
