nirvana (nir-VAH-nuh) noun
1. Freedom from the endless cycle of birth and death and related suffering.
[From Sanskrit nirvana (blowing out, extinguishing, extinction), from nis- (out) + vati (it blows). Ultimately from the Indo-European root we- (to blow) that is also the source of wind, weather, ventilate, window and wing.]
"'Hawaii looks like nirvana' compared to the rest of the country, said Emily

the island health care system."
