Nirvana it is a Sanskrit word that refers to a state that can be achieved through the meditation and the illumination , and that consists in the liberation of desires, individual conscience and reincarnation.
For shramánica philosophy, nirvana is the state that marks the emancipation of suffering and the end of the revival cycle . That is why the concept can be translated as "tie off" (an allegory to the knots of the mind).
Specifically, we can also establish that nirvana becomes the fundamental element of three more religions: Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
In the first case, it must be stated that nirvana is seen as the moment of liberation in which the soul is going to unite indissolubly with divinity. Hence, that term is used frequently in the stages related to both life and death.
In the case of the Buddhist religion, it is clear that this state of nirvana is achieved through meditation. Thus, during it the individual has to analyze not only what is his own mind but also his body. This is how you will end all suffering.
And finally in Jainism, the religion of India created in VI BC by Saint Vardhamana Mahavira, defines nirvana as that process that translates into the liberation of the various states of karma.
Nirvana is associated with the peace and to the stillness. When experiencing this state, the person abandon the false idea of Me and sheds herself of conscience, desire, need and hate. It is, in a way, an absolute truth.
