Nirvana represents the ultimate goal of every human being, expressed in the cessation of suffering - dukkha, attachments - doshas, ​​rebirth - samsara and exclusion from the impact of the "laws of karma." Nirvana divided into upadhasheshey - extinction of human passions and apupadhasheshey - cessation of existence (Parinirvana).
