there are two ways to discuss nibbana: sa-upadisesa and anupadisesa. The elders do not present anupadisesa as a conscious experience.

And, I also love this "test drive", by zom.

Nirodha samapatti is the same as a "test drive" for anupadisesa nibbana element

Re: The Elders did not create paradoxes

Hello friend, I am quite sure, as of now, you've already found the answer to your OP in thread "Nibbana according to Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw". Still, regarding Mahasi Sayadaw's statement on "cessation of the mind that notes them", I've not found answers on original thread which referred directly to...

I'm asking about why you prefer using the word "Nirvana" in Classical Theravada forum?

Re: The Elders did not create paradoxes

Why does Theravada use Pali while Mahayana uses Sanskrit? Sanskrit is a higher language. Pali was chosen in order to make Buddhism more available. No, I'm not asking about it. I'm asking about why you prefer using the word "nivarna" in Classical Theravada forum? "To be, or not to be, that is the qu...

Re: The Elders did not create paradoxes

Thanks for kind and deep explanations. From how I personally see it from the suttas, there are 2 nibbana elements, one is psychological nibbana (sa-upadisesa-nibbana) defined exactly as "destruction of kilesas", which is arahant's mind state; another is ontological nibbana, the cessation of the All,...

as I understand, Nirvana is the absence of stress

the mind feels this absence of stress
Nirvana?
Interesting.
Unusually strange word for me.

Are you discussing from Mahayana or other "similar" perspectives?

Re: The Elders did not create paradoxes

So it's never explained anywhere? The best explanation is that mind ceases and this is nibbana (which is translated as "extinguishment"). Just that simple. And understanding this is only possible with retrospective knowledge, when mind reappears. This is what, obviously, happens when someone finall...

Re: The Elders did not create paradoxes

I don't accept any consciousness whatsoever to be permanent or unconditioned. Nibbana is not consciousness. That's how I accept. this is desire for non existence Hello my friend, I deeply respect your immense faith in your own stance, and your bottomless compassion for all of us. When someone is in...
