Nibbāna PariNibbāna


What is the clear difference of PariNibbāna from Nibbāna in Buddhism?

The term 'Pari' in pali language means, all round; altogether; completely or away from, off.

What are the added features of Pari+Nibbāna ('full Nibbāna') from Nibbāna to complete the no-form/no-state?

“an-upādi-sesa Parinibbāna"
= extinction/emancipation with no rebirth/clinging-substratum left.

= extinction (of passion) with some substratum left.

~ Mahā-parinibbāna-sutta
