Contemplation points

In your own words, explain what nirvana is and how to attain it.
What are innate and acquired afflictions? Make some examples of each. What are some in particular that you struggle with or hold strongly to? How do they limit you? How do these cause obstacles in your life and practice?
What are the four attributes of true cessation? What is meditating on these points leading us to understand?
To get a small taste of what nirvana could be like, imagine that an affliction such as anger is totally absent from your mind. No matter what someone says or does, no matter what happens, you will never get angry again.
How do you counteract discomfort and / or fear when thinking about emptiness?
Reflect that nirvana is the complete absence of all afflictions forever. Aspire to attain it.
