The primitive meaning of this celebrated word, Nirva?a, seems to be twofold: on the one hand, 'becoming cool, cooling'; on the other hand, 'blowing out,' 'extinguishing.' There is a nirva?a of a man who is thirsty as well as of a candle.

Hence two directions in the evolution of the religious or philosophical meaning of the word. Cooling, refreshment, the refreshment of a man who is suffering, the cooling of a man who is hot with desire, comfort, peace, serenity, bliss. Also extinction, detachment or extinction of the fire of the passions, negative bliss or extinction of suffering, annihilation or extinction of individual existence.

Each metaphor is apt to convey two distinct ideas.

On the one hand, Nirva?a is Sanctity (arhattva). For a Saint (arhat) has become cold (sitibhuta), as he is no more burned by the fire of passions, and he has extinguished this fire.

On the other hand, Nirva?a is the ultimate end of a man, the state of a Saint after death.

For Nirva?a may be cooling of suffering—an eternal refreshment—or extinction of existence.
