NIRVANA

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

A hexagram (Greek) or sexagram (Latin) is a six-pointed geometric star figure . It is the compound of two equilateral triangles. The intersection is a regular hexagon.The hexagram is a mandala symbol called satkona yantra found on ancient South Indian Hindu temples. It symbolizes the nara-narayana, or perfect meditative state of balance achieved between Man and God, and if maintained, results in “moksha,” or “nirvana” (release from the bounds of the earthly world and its material trappings).

In Indian religions moksha (Sanskrit: मोक्ष mokṣa; liberation) or mukti (Sanskrit: मुक्ति; release —both from the root muc “to let loose, let go”) is the final extrication of the soul or consciousness (purusha) from samsara and the bringing to an end of all the suffering involved in being subject to the cycle of repeated death and rebirth (reincarnation). — Ref: Wikipedia.org
