Wizard in the Forest wrote:Nagarjuna did not deny the existence of nibbana, but rather the fruitlessness of trying to describe it in words. This is because words are just complex schematics conditioned by greed, hatred, and delusion. Nibbana is unconditioned, and uncompounded. So to say it is a "thing", and a "word" is factual.
The only thing you said here that is correct: Nibbana is unconditioned, and uncompounded. That which is the destruction of greed, hatred and delusion is asankhata
[unconditioned/uncompounded]. -- S.N. IV 359 and S.N. 362That which is the destruction of greed, hatred and delusion is nibbana.
-- S.N. IV 251 and IV 321.
There "is" no nibbana outside of the process of the individual nibbanized, the individual who is no longer conditioned by greed, hatred and delusion.
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond. -- SN I, 38.
There is freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning. If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80
