What Nirvana is not

It seems the idea of Nirvana is so appealing companies around the world use the term to entice you to buy there products. So today I’m going to do the easy part, and tell you what is not Nirvana:

It is the name of a grunge rock band from Seattle, however with their promotion of mind altering substances, definitively not the real Nirvana.

It is not Taco Bell‘s Enchilada Nirvana from 2003, eating their chicken enchilada will not have you floating in the air.

Even though web pages may exist in the cloud as they now call online storage or hosting, it is not a Vancouver web design firm.

If getting thing off your mind, was all it took, it might be a browser based organizer from a Montreal company, but it’s more so, so sorry.

Nirvana requires a mind free from intoxicants, so it is not a Cannabis seed supplier in the USA.

It’s not one of who knows how many restaurants.

Also sorry ladies, its not a chocolate company of the same name either.

There are many more, however tomorrow, I’ll try to explain what the Buddha meant by Nirvana.
