parinibbana - yes or no?

Postby clw_uk » Thu Jan 15, 2009 3:55 pm

As far i can make out parinibbana is nibbana after death or the final nibbana. Does this accord with the buddhas teachings or not? I understood nibbana that can be achieved here and now to be it, there is no beyond it.

The suttas mention both Nibbana here & now and Parinibbana, which is the Buddha's death.

The suttas primarily teach about Nibbana here & now, which is defined as the cessation of greed, hatred & delusion.

For one opinion on Nibbana, you can google the web for 'Nibbana for Everyone' by Bhikkhu Buddhadasa.
