Death in Buddhism




Death and the nirvana of the Buddha's teachings have a dual nature, affirming the unity of Hegel law and the fight of opposites. On the one hand, nirvana - it is the quality of the world in which we lost all the usual system of coordinates and the sensor's life. "There are about bhikshu, - said the Buddha - a state where neither land nor water, nor light, nor air, nor the infinite space or infinite wisdom, neither uncertainty nor the destruction of the submissions and failure, nor of this world, nor a nor sun nor moon. This, of bhikshu, I did not call either the emergence or the process or condition, or death or birth. It is without basis, without continuing, non-stop: this is the end of suffering. " Since nirvana - is the ultimate goal of life, then leave it forever. Such a kind of black hole. On the other hand, nirvana is an information link to your earthly, sensual world, moreover, a Buddhist monk Nagasena characterize it using purely earthly terms. How to know nirvana - you ask. In the absence of suffering, danger, fear, through happiness, peace, bliss, perfection, purity, freshness... " But it is paradoxical that of Nirvana, you can return to our world - so does the Buddha himself, returning from Mahaparinirvany (great perfect Nirvana) for the new embodiment of the earth. It seems that nirvana is not in a position to destroy the personality of its solutions on the constituent elements. Nirvana is not the swamp sucks forever. Rather, it represents a kind of energy up, totally self-sufficient, which is in a static state, but capable at any moment to re-establish any probable state of existence. Referring to physical terms, nirvana - it is the border area between the entropy and antientropiey possessing with the properties of their neighbors. Thus, nirvana is great, and Nothing All at the same time great. Borges in a brilliant lecture on Buddhism leads Austrian orientalist remarks, noted that "in his discussion of the Buddha in mind the physical representations of their era, but the idea of extinction was then not the same as now: it was thought that the flame does not disappear, zatuhaya. It was believed that the flame continues to exist, that it will survive another hypostasis, so the term "nirvana" is not meant in the strict sense of "fading". It means that we dlimsya other way. The way we do not. "
