Back in the days of the Buddha, nirvana (nibbana) had a verb of its own: nibbuti. It meant to "go out," like a flame. Because fire was thought to be in a state of entrapment as it burned — both clinging to and trapped by the fuel on which it fed — its going out was seen as an unbinding.
I was listening to the strokes who made me nibbuti as i reminisced about a year in which work wasn't a constant, as is often the reason to go into a nirvana.
