Is Nirvana Guaranteed? (Ajahn Brahm)

Is Nirvana Guaranteed?
Most modern people who choose a spiritual path want guaranteed results, just as if we were buying an expensive item from a department store: We want guarantees, products that work right away, or our money back. Embedded in this attitude is the idea that we go about grasping at and acquiring things. But the Buddhist path is not about getting stuff. It is all about freedom and letting go. When we learn to let go (to "renounce," abandon, relinquish, get free of), we are on the path to nirvana.
