Nirvana is a word which enfolds many subtexts and nuances though it is lavishly, oftentimes divergently being used. Its origin is in Sanskrit and Vedic for the most part though Buddhism has used it as if it was originally Buddhist. It is to be at one with the supreme being and in Buddhism it is doing away with materialistic propensities.

One is the way they are, not some other way.

The work involved in meditation is sold as the pursuit of the ultimate goal, but sorry, you already are the way you are, and still chase yourself anyway... so ask why is 'this' inadequate? Is 'this' somehow not worthy of 'God's love?'

The meditation isn't chasing anything, it's removing these falsities from the mind.
