Nibbāna : (see vāyati) refers only to the (non— ) emittance of an odour, which could never be used for a meaning of “being exhausted”; moreover, one has to bear in mind that native commentators themselves never thought of explaining nibbāna by anything like blowing (vāta), but always by nis+vana (see nibbana). For Bdhgh’s defn of nibbāna see e. g. Vism 293. — The meanings of n. are: 1. the going out of a lamp or fire (popular meaning). — 2. health, the sense of bodily well— being (probably, at first, the passing away of feverishness, restlessness).
