NIRVANA

T
his is the state where all human defilement and passion have been completely extinguished,  An absolute extinction of that life-affirming will manifested as Greed, Hate and Delusion, and convulsively clinging to existence; and therewith also the ultimate and absolute deliverance from all future rebirth, old age, disease and death, from all suffering and misery and  through certain practices and meditation  based upon Right Wisdom, and It is the highest and ultimate goal of all Buddhist aspirations. Those who had attained this state are called Buddha's

Extinction of greed, Extinction of hate, Extinction of delusion: This is called Nibbana

Gautama Siddhartha had attained this state and became a Buddha at 35. However, it is now believed that it was only after he had passed away that he reached such a state of perfect tranquility, because some residue of human defilement would continue to exist as long as his physical body existed
