## Enlightened Nirvana = The moment when you go back to your breath and you breathe mindfully, Enlightened Nirvana is there, because mindfulness is the substance of Enlightened Nirvana. Budha is there, the Enlightened Nirvana is there at the same time. And when you sit mindfully, enjoying your breathing, I am sure that the element of Enlightened Nirvana is there, protecting you, making life possible at that moment. And when you walk mindfully, the element of Enlightened Nirvana is there, protecting you, making you more stable, and more open. ##
What you said didn't make any sense to a person who does not practice meditation, how do you explain "Enlightened Nirvana" to Phu'c So*n whose interests are in nembutsu and being reborn in the Western World?
