brahma-nirvå√am  = the abode of pure consciousness, the place where all suffering ceases.

Verse 72 of Chapter 2 of the Bhagavad Gita concludes with "brahma-nirvanam ricchati."  Some scholars state this has a connection with the Buddhist notion of nirvana.  The phrase is a reference to the cessation of worldly existence and entry into the spiritual domain or brahman.
