The Search for Nirvana

Every thinking man strives to attain nirvana (salvation) in his own way: a religious man seeks nirvana in his theological musings and prayers; an artist seeks nirvana in his works of art; a philosopher seeks nirvana in his philosophy; a politician seeks nirvana in his politics; a businessman seeks nirvana in his material achievements. But nirvana denotes the stage of intellectual, moral, and psychological perfection, the stage where there is total self-realization and self-fulfillment. Perfection, however, is not possible to man, and, no man can attain nirvana; he can only strive for it.
