I don't know... Shangri-La seems to good to be true. Also, it's not even a real belief but a mythical place. It's based off of a description of a place in a story called "Lost Horizon" that some British dude named James Hilton wrote in nineteen-thirty-three.

nirvana   
 
nir·va·na [neer vnə, nur vnə]
noun
1.  Nir·va·naspiritual enlightenment: in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, the attainment of enlightenment and freeing of the spiritual self from attachment to worldly things, ending the cycle of birth and rebirth
2.  completely enjoyable experience: an ultimate experience of some pleasurable emotion such as harmony or joy


[Mid-19th century. < Sanskrit < nirvā- "be extinguished" < nis- "out" + vā- "to blow"]

Hmm.... the etymology seems to indicate the end of life. To blow out the last candle so to speak.
Or the extinguishing of the passions maybe?

I could go into detail but that would involve research.



The closer you get to light, the greater your shadow becomes.
But don’t be afraid. And don’t forget...
You hold the mightiest weapon of all.

I don't know much about Shangrala, just that it is supposed to be the most peaceful of places, which sounds pretty boring to me, hence the lack of study.

lol I get that feeling, probably too often :P!
Apparently the second, almost first, most researched spells after love are hexes and curses so we're not alone :P

I know it sounds stupid but how can you have to stages of complete fufilment or is it the nirvana is a state of being and shangrila is an actual place?

You Guys know...... this is quite possibly the most proper definition we'll get.

How is something considered a mythical place as mentioned before? Mythical places are neither proven or disprove.
Death is the beginning of life. Life is the end of death. And only God lies in between the two.

  It can be sonsidered Mythical because of a persons "Faith" in it's exsistance, Shangrala exist in much the same fashion as Heaven and Hell.  Neither can be physically proven, but many believe that they are there none the less.

 That goes for most of what's on this site. We can't prove or disprove it, but we still believe.
