Once upon a time, in a certain town there was a coffin maker who opened and was running a store where he sold the coffins he made himself to the customers in the neighborhood. The popuplation in the town increased day-by-day.
When he was still a Bodhisattva, the Buddha himself once said about Nirvana in his Jataka:
"When the fire of lust is extinct, that is Nirvana; When the fire of hatred and infatuation are extinct, that is Nirvana; When pride, false belief and all other passions and torments are extinct, that is Nirvana."
The d.o.m.'s question: Can Nirvana be attained and abided with?
