The Buddhistic term Nirvana means the stage where a person arrives at God-consciousness or all-consciousness. It is at this stage that a soul arrives. And why should not man have that privilege? If man has not that privilege, how can God have it? It is through man that God realizes His perfection. As man, God becomes conscious of His Godship, and it is in this gradual progress -- to begin as a soul and to arrive at that realization which makes that soul a divine soul -- that lies the purpose of life. The whole creation is purposed to bring about that realization. It is that realization which is recognized by the name Rasul.
