Celebrating Nirvana Day

Yeah, there are other faiths.

I was gonna post a different picture of Buddha, but it is gone. So appropriate.
It would take every column inch of this paper to explain what Nirvana is. Finding and comprehending the state of perfect happiness is a lifetime quest, said Sensei G.R. Lewis of the Buddhist Faith Fellowship in Middletown.

Nirvana Day was observed on Feb. 10 at the Middletown center. But some Buddhists celebrate it on Feb. 8 or today. The day is also called Parinirvana or Nehan-e and is a time to remember the story of Buddha's passing into Nirvana.

Personally I never go for happiness. Contentment is fine. I am almost never "happy".
