They Meditate strongly and during their mediation become a true disciple of the Buddha (taking refuge in the Buddha) as in Dharmic religions being a disciple of sant/satguru i…s absolutely vital for one's soul(atman/jiva) to attain nirvana, as it is the sant/satguru who will walk the soul back to Nirvana!They understand the four noble truths and follow the eightfold path.Tibetan Buddhists also follow the Dalai lama's 18 ways of living. They practice yoga.They pray a lot They take advice from their guru!They seek true inner happiness during life. They follow the Noble Eightfold Path.
They have to reach enlightenment, they having to lead a life of selflessness and unattachment... The first person to even reached enlightenment was Buddha.... since then …countless people have reached it and returned ( at least in Mahayana teachings) as Bodhisattvas. Buddha is reveres as he reached enlightenment on his own, without instruction.
There are three ways (Bodhis) which you can reach Nirwana. Those are Sammā-Sambodhi(Lord Buddha), Pacceka-Bodhi and Savaka-Bhodhi(Arahath). The easiest way to get enlighten…ment (or reach Nirwana) is the Savaka-Bhodhi. Those who obtained the enlightenment by following teachings of the Samma-Sambuddha are obtained enlightenment through Savaka-Bhodhi. They have to do concentrated meditation (Bhavana) to develop Samadhi (Samatha meditation). Then with developed mind they have to think about three marks of existence (Samsara) which is Anicca, Dukkha and Anatta. (Vipassanā meditation). Doing this with big effort they will understand Four Noble Truths clearly. So they will attain Nirvana (get enlightenment). If you have cultivated enough virtues connected with Bodhi (bodhipaksa dharma) you can reach Nirwana in this life because still not exceeded 5000years range from the Gautama Lord Buddha's enlightenment. First thing you have to do is believe the supreme state of Lord Buddha(infinite intelligence, infinite power, infinite kindness, ..) and existence of Karma. Then follow Noble Eightfold Path, Study Dharma and do Mediation (Vipassana). You will be reaching Nirwana definitely with permanent happy and without any more sufferings in sad Samsara(infinite cycle of rebirth).
No nothing. It is stage of completeness where desire for anything is ceased.
see link "What is Nirvana."
I'm in Nirvana!Awake, enlightened - a Buddha! Attaining Nirvana is associated with the concept of the loss of maintaining a separate identity from everything else. If you have… no identity and no personal concept of being separate, you would have no need for a name.
Enlightenment, which is a state in which we see all things clearly, just as they are, without judgments and preconceptions, and where suffering ends can be attained by followi…ng what the Buddha described as the Eightfold Path. It is a path between the extremes of sensual pleasure and asceticism. The Buddha made this observation when he became aware of the impact of his opulent early life as a prince and the lack of progress towards enlightenment he archived as a wandering (and starving) mendicant holy man. The Noble Eightfold Path was also described by the Buddha as The Middle Way. The Noble Eightfold Path consists of: 1. Right View 2. Right Intention (thought) 3. Right Speech 4. Right Action 5. Right Livelihood 6. Right Effort 7. Right Mindfulness 8. Right Concentration. But in short, one must overcome their desires, aversions and preconceptions to reach enlightenment.
I'm not sure if this is spelled right, but Siddhartha Gatauma.
Enlightenment is the goal of Buddhists. With enlightenment comes Nirvana, the peace of mind that occurs when greed, anger, jealousy, and delusion have been extinguished.
If you do a little research into the Four Noble Truths you'll see the essential answer there. The Four Noble Truths are the fundamental teachings of the Buddha, they compris…e: Suffering - we suffer because we attach to things that are impermanentThis suffering has three causes - desire, hatred and delusion also known as attachment, aversion and ignorance.We can end our own suffering by ceasing our attachment to impermanent thingsThe Buddha presents a way to end suffering through an Eightfold path The eightfold path is the strict answer you may be looking for
Free from suffering
Nirvana is a state of being that is free from suffering. That doesn't mean that you become a stone, impervious to all emotions. it means that you live life fully awake and not… tormented by your desires and perceptions.
a point where your soul feels no pain and never need to reincarante to man to endure man's suffering on earth.
Abandon all attachment and aversion.
