Summary: The etymology of Nirvana is a compound of the prefix "nir" which means "without" and the root "vana", translated as "blowing" as in "blowing of the wind."

Author's Notes: Jack behaved so oddly on the Isle of Cruces...more than usual I mean. I wanted to understand why he was sitting zazen in a meditation posture, and this silly little notion was born. It's a bit over 100 words, sorry!



Jack wandered widely, six of the years without his ship. In South Asia he found Buddhists, and was charmed by their hospitality and the simplicity of their Eight-Fold Path: Jack disliked religions that demanded he worship anyone besides himself. Though doubtful of their self-denial, he was intrigued enough to take up a few practices.

Close to his goal, Jack strove for inner peace. The clunk of shovel hitting wood made his eyes fly open anticipatorily. Unfurling, he had time for a revelation.

Why would he want to achieve a "place of no wind"?
