Post by කිත්සිරි ද සිල්වා on Sun May 06, 2018 11:28 am

Among the brilliant theorists cloistered in the quiet Woodside campus of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, Edward Witten stands out as a kind of high priest.

The sole physicist ever to win the Fields Medal, mathematics’ premier prize, Witten is also known for discovering M-theory, the leading candidate for a unified physical “theory of everything".

A genius’s genius, Witten is tall and rectangular, with hazy eyes and an air of being only one-quarter tuned in to reality until someone draws him back from more abstract thoughts.

During a visit this fall, I spotted Witten on the Institute’s central lawn and requested an interview; in his quick, alto voice, he said he couldn’t promise to be able to answer my questions but would try. Later, when I passed him on the stone paths, he often didn’t seem to see me.

නිවන යනු නිවීමයි. සසර අවසනයි. නැවත ඉපදීමක් නැත. නිවී ගිය පහන් දැල්ල ගිය තැනක් නැත.

Yes  it is understood Nirvana apparently leads to no rebirth and end of suffering.


Nirvana meaning from sanskrit ( from what I heard ) essentially means  "extinction and disappearance" of the individual from the universe.

But the question is , isn't attaining enlightenment a state of mind ?

Then what happens to the mind  ? ( am not talking about physical existence  which naturally will be none after nirvana)

In universities, students are taught the subjects by lecturers who have completed the same degree before. students in the same batch can not teach fellow students, they are not qualified to do so..

so Nirvana should be preached by people who gone to Nirvana first.. No living being is qualified to talk about Nirvana..we all human beings are in the same batch..

Thanks for adding value.

I asked about what happens to the Mind after Nirvana, in response to Kithsiri's question what beyond Nivana!

Something we will not know if/until it happens.
If/when it happens, we don't talk about it or we are no more to talk about it.

Malnap, you are correct. We laymen can only repeat what we learnt. There may be areas where we never learn prior to attaining Nirwana.

SLS, as far as I have learnt, there are two parts within us, ie; our body(karaja Kaya) and the Mind (Mano Kaya or විඥානය). With the death, our body decays and the Mind or විඥානය continues the journey in the Samsara.

The Mind or විඥානය of those who attained Nibbana is unable to continue the journey after the death.

The following video touches the modern concept of "Theory of Every Thing" and relates them to the Buddhist teachings. The priest appears to have good knowledge on modern science.

If religion proves science is correct, then leave the religion and adopt science..

The difference is in science, you get what you see. in religion, you get what you dont see..
