Where is nibbāna

When the Vererable Sāriputta, the chief disciple of the Buddha, was asked by the devotee Jabukhādaka, “Nibbāna, nibbāna, is the saying, friend, Sāriputta. What is nibbāna?” Sāriputta replied, the destruction of lust, the destruction of hatred, the destruction of delusion, friend, is called nibbāna.” It is also called the cessation of defilements (kilesa-nibbāna). There, it is said, in Theravada Buddhism, that it is possible to experience the bliss of nibbāna here and now, in this very life. There is no need to wait until you die.

涅槃是佛教的最高境界,也是信徒希望達到的目標。摧毀三毒貪、瞋、癡就是涅槃,又即滅盡所有煩惱。涅槃有別於其他宗教的天堂,它不是一處地方。當其他宗教追求死後的天堂或永生時,佛教告訴我們在當下已經能體驗涅槃的喜悅。

  1. That means everyone can achieve if he destroys his lust, hatred and delusion?
