Nirvana the Highest Happiness: Meditations on Buddhist Issues

Susunaga Weeraperuma (Author)
Synopsis Nirvana, is the extinction of all illusion from consciousness, especially the deep-rooted delusion of ‘I’. It has been described as that which is Unborn, Unoriginated and Unformed. This well researched and clear-sighted collection of essays is the work of an eminent writer in the field of Indology. Though written from the standpoint of Theravada, the author occasionally expresses views that lie outside the mainstream of current Theravada. A collection of refreshingly original essays offer enquiry into the Self from the Buddhist Perspective. “Who has the patience to endure suffering for an indefinite period of time? Let us rejoice that there is the possibility of immediate realization, instantaneous spiritual transformation as it were in the twinkling of an eye. So if we fail to find the releases of Enlightenment in this present life, we have only ourselves to blame for our great lassitude and lack of enthusiasm for Nirvana.”
