Nirvana is too serious to be taken seriously.

Nirvana may be something akin to what Paul Valery stated: "To see is to forget the name of the thing one sees."

In other words, to know is to never comprehend the full essence of Nirvana that one thinks he or she knows.

"Monks, I will teach you the All. Listen & pay close attention. I will speak."

"As you say, lord," the monks responded.

The Blessed One said, "What is the All? Simply the eye & forms, ear & sounds, nose & aromas, tongue & flavors, body & tactile sensations, intellect & ideas. This, monks, is called the All. Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range."
