WHAT IS EXPRESS PATH:
The word Express can be split as ExPressare, where Ex is a prefix meaning "relief or to remove" and Latin word Pressare means "to Press or to compress." Thus the word Express means "to represent or to convey implicitly or symbolically" in words without any misleading information.
NIRA is a newly designed and recently developed system, which is well expressed and presents the whole path of self-realization. It has its own new science known as Conscience, it has its own mathematics known as Organums and it has its own new language to convey his message and ideas in a unique form known as Nucleus or UCL.
Express also means "Explicitly laid down, specially fast". Thus Express path conveys a track laid down with a clear aim, direction encompassing the time, speed and maturity. This Express path is further divided into four tracks Viz. 1) Brahmacharya 2) Grihastha 3) Vanprastha and finally 4) Sanyastha. Each in turn has three sub-tracks, i.e. Theory, Practical and Application i.e. Level 1, 2 and 3. The seeker travels through all these four tracks by toggling from moment to moment according to situation and the state, velocity, maturity and understanding of his mind. Thus one learns Art of Living and Art of Dying simultaneously in Nira.
THREE FOLD NOBLE PATH:
The Three Fold noble path enfolds within itself the three basic aspects of Schoolwork i.e. Theory, Practical and Application leading to Nirbhar, Nirvikar and Nirvichar. One without the other is incomplete.
As commonly observed religion begins with Knowledge, proceeds in Practice and ends in its Application, which finally leads to Realization in life bringing fulfillment or Enlightenment.
Schoolwork is special kind of gradual work done by the participant in direction to acquire knowledge. One has to work intensively on oneself to change or transform one's being. One has to put conscious effort ceaselessly and have to fight against Mechanicalness. Thus many things require to attempt to final Crystallization i.e. one needs a well explained and expressed, thoroughly presented convincible theory, a well guided systematic training, exercises and effective practical and finally the application part, which demands satisfactory results in his life spontaneously. Thus in Schoolwork gradual instructions, clickings, twistings, personal guidance, and group working plays a very important role, which gives continuity to the individual self-work.
WHAT IS THEORY?
Theory is the first tool of acquiring knowledge consciously through conscious mind. Theory initiates the journey, it is necessary as a first step but certainly it is not the final step. The so-called theory can be divided into three parts i.e. theory of Knowing, Being and living. Theory of Knowing is a first step, to know "about God", where theory of Being is the second step to know more about "How to became god" and theory of Living is the third step to know "how to live God". Thus it is just a description, outlet periphery or an idea explaining how sugar is made but to feel satisfied one needs to experience it.
It is very necessary to have a clear view of the path of the dhamma, which can be successfully attained through Books, Discourses, Sharing, Imagining, Contemplating, Reasoning and Debating.
WHAT IS PRACTICAL?
Practical is the second tool towards experiencing wisdom by practicing or giving training to one's own mind subconsciously. It is a special conscious effort which one continuously applies against the unconscious habit patterns of mind and trying to come out of his own created defilement. It is an exercise of the will, memory and discipline. It de-hooks the mind from the grip of the unwanted memories, beliefs, identities and their emotions.
WHAT IS APPLICATION?
Application is the last and hence the most important tool to live wisdom or freedom unconsciously. It is the most difficult, tedious and arduous part. Sometimes it is easy to memorize all theories, it is easy to perform a practical of the acquired knowledge within a particular atmosphere, for a definite time, with a group of people. But it is more difficult to live the acquired knowledge in the absence of conscious effort, group, atmosphere and definite time.
Enlightenment is a Modern English term derived from Medium English "Enlighten" i.e. En plus Light meaning, 'to put light upon'. Where 'en' is a Latin word meaning 'in' and 'lighten' means 'to illuminate or a flash' is a common English term derived from Medium English term 'lightenen' i.e. light plus n plus en where the 'n' is formative, and gives the sense 'to become light'.
Thus the word Enlightenment means a continues process of lightening or becoming aware of the darkened part of any object.
(Niravana - Sanskrit meaning "extinguishing"), in Indian religious philosophy, is a transcendental state free from suffering and individual phenomenal existence, an ultimate religious goal most frequently identified with Buddhism. The word is derived from a verb meaning "to become cool," or "to blow out," as in the extinguishing of a candle. The connotation is that only in nirvana are the flames of lust, hatred, greed, and ignorance extinguished. With the attainment of nirvana, the otherwise endless cycle of rebirths is broken.
Mahaparinirvana is the life beyond Sansara and Sanyas, as the term Pari explains the meaning of beyond, hence beyond nirvana or Enlightenment i.e. the ultimate freedom. Sanyas is nothing but a pure Sansara or it is a subtle kind of Sansara. While living Sansara, one seeks all material worldly things e.g. money and tries to satisfy himself, similarly while living Sanyas, one seeks immaterial non-worldly things e.g. meditation and tries to get satisfaction.
In both cases the man is in the same position but at different level. So when a man drops or transcends both the worlds, he enters into the dimension of Mahaparinirvana. Now one drops the seeking, as he understands the universal law that to seek satisfaction is the root of dissatisfaction.
