Nippan

Also known as Nibbana (Pali) or Nirvana (Sanskrit). In Buddhism, it is believed that one will go through an endless cycle of death and rebirth. This includes being born as a deity, human, animal/ insect, demon, and many others. This results in endless suffering until the eventual transmutation of the mind results in Nippan. It is described as a state where Greed (including Lust), Hatred and Delusion are eradicated. The mind is freed from the clutches of ignorance, which are the root cause of experiencing rebirth.
