Wu Chen Cemetery is in Nie Pan (Nirvana) Area, where the Buddha was enlightened according to Buddhist Sutra. A giant picture of nirvana sculpted on a piece of bluestone is set in front of Wu Chen Cemetery. In Buddhist Sutra, nirvana means the one who has released from the cycle of rebirth and all suffering has come to an end. When all affections and suffering have gone, the mind will be free from negative mental states. The only thing left is a state of peaceful, happy, and non-reactive. This is the wonderland that Chinese generations are looking forward to.
