A discussion of the history of Buddhism and the concept of Nirvana - of which one explanation is the highest level of God-consciousness. This concept is not fully understood, even by Buddhists and is often misinterpreted. The author explains various ideas of the state of Nirvana and examines its different phases and types, and also looks at Guatama's (Buddha) experience of Nirvana.

From the Paper:

"Nirvana, is the inexpressible definitive in which one has achieved disinterested wisdom and sympathy. The goal is of divine practice in all branches of Buddhism. In the understanding of early Buddhism, it is leaving the cycle of sadness and entry into a very different mode of existence. It involves absolute conquering of the three disagreeable roots--undisciplined-desire, hate, and illusion (akushala). Nirvana is unconditioned (asamskrita) consciousness. Its features are stopping the activities of the mind in a state of consciousness.
Nirvana is a stress on the unified nature of the world. Nirvana is envisaged as a human experience of oneness with unconditioned realization of the absolute. This gives insight into the unity of the world (samsara), body, mind and spirit."
