In a box out inside the book called 'The Buddha's Teaching' by Richard Drummond, under the title Nirvana:
The goal of life is nirvana. This is not the annihilation of the self (a Buddhist heresy). On the contrary nirvana is a transformed mode of human consciousness, also an independant reality with a dynamism of its own. It is radically other than the material world: the eternal realm, the uterly depndable, the true refuge.
I find this really resonsates with me and with my experience and just wanted to share it with the forum
