Parinirvāṇa; That which is beyond (para) Nirvāṇa. The Buddha was said to have attained Nirvāṇa under the Bodhi tree, and parinirvāṇa when he “died”, thus complete extinction of or release from all Attachment to the Form. In technical Buddhism it refers to complete cessation, non-residual Nirvāṇa, the passing away of Buddhas.
