Nibbana (Pali), nirvana (Sanskrit), is the highest spiritual state. The origin of the word nirvana relates to religious enlightenment. Nibbana means non-attachment. It comes from the Sanskrit meaning "extinction, disappearance" of the individual to the universal.

ஒன்றாகக் காண்பதே காட்சி; புலன்ஐந்தும்|
வென்றான்தன் வீரமே வீரமாம் - என்றானும்
சாவாமல் கற்பதே கல்வி; தனைப்பிறர் |
ஏவாமல் உண்பதே ஊண்' - [ஔவையார்]
