: Does the idea of attaining parinirvana scare anyone apart from me? I understand it's supposed to be indiscribable bliss but the idea still scares me. I've heard it described as beyond space and time, formless, and eternal. It is so alien to the form of existance I'm used to (being a human experiencing the passage of time). I think it's the fact that it is eternal and beyond time that scares me the most. Does anyone or did anyone used to feel this way too, or have I misunderstood the idea of parinirvana?
I presume that U have not understood well what
Buddhism is about.
There is nothing to fear of.
Unless U are clinging to much to this world and its
U should see the suffering side of life to know
that life is full of sufferings.
Yours in the Dharma,
