Nirvana is the supreme state free from suffering and individual existence. It is a state often referred to as "self realization" or "God realization". Its the ultimate religious goal of all Hindus. The attainment of nirvana breaks the otherwise endless rebirth cycle of transmigration. Hindus call this nirvana "eternal bliss". However, no one can describe in words what nirvana is. It can only be experienced directly.
