...-nirvāṇa (Skt.; Pāli, nirupādhisesa-nibbāna). ‘Nirvāṇa without remainder’, an alternative designation for the nirvāṇa that is attained at death . Also known as ‘final’ nirvāṇa or parinirvāṇa . The remainder or residue referred to (upādhi) is the five aggregates ( skandha ) that consitute individuality, and which cease at the point when nirupādhiśeṣa-nirvāṇa is attained. For this reason the state is also known in Pāli sources as ‘the nirvāṇa of the aggregates’ (khandha-parinibbāna). One who attains this nirvāṇa is not reborn. This condition is...

...-nirvāṇa (Skt.; Pāli, anupadisesa-nibbāna ). Nirvāna with no lingering conditions remaining—as opposed to nirvāna which is attained, but with residual shadows of previous existence still continuing. The latter condition means that the Buddha can be completely enlightened, but his bodily appearance continues, so that he can, for example, teach others. Parinirvāṇa is then the attainment of complete nirvāna at death (though parinirvāṇa can also mean nirvāna before death, hence the present term). Cf., but contrast, the Mahāyāna ...

...nirvāṇa (Skt.). Literally ‘localized nirvāṇa’, or that form of nirvāṇa , according to the Mahāyāna , in which a Buddha or other liberated being remains utterly separated or isolated from the world. Such an individual was identified with the post-mortem form of nirvāṇa known as nirupadhiśeṣa-nirvāṇa . According to the Mahāyāna this was the inferior goal advocated by the Hīnayāna , in contrast to the Mahāyāna ideal of ‘unlocalized nirvāṇa’ ( apratiṣṭhita-nirvāṇa...

...nirvāna . In Mahāyāna Buddhism, the attainment of final nirvāna , with no remaining connection with the world of appearance. A bodhisattva postpones this attainment to help others ( pranidhāna ), though in fact, since all is of the same nature, empty of self ( śūnyatā ), he is in the condition of nirvāna while helping still in the domain of appearance ( saṃsāra ). Thus although the concept seems the equivalent of the Theravāda nirupadhiśeṣa-nirvāna , the two are radically...
