ÇÔÁØµÔÊØ¢ -- help with translation
I was told this word means something like inner peace or ultimate happiness. I understand that it is a pali word...? can someone please clarify or elaborate on what it means?

ÇÔÁØµÔÊØ¢ or ÇÔÁØµµÔÊØ¢ (Vimuttisuk) - ¤ÇÒÁÊØ¢¨Ò¡¡ÒÃËÅØ´¾é¹ (Bliss of Freedom)
ÇÔÁØµÔ (vimutti) is a Pali word, means "nirvana, freedom, liberation"
ÊØ¢ - happiness
Vimutti - Release; freedom from the fabrications and conventions of the mind.
The suttas distinguish between two kinds of release. Discernment-release (panna-vimutti) describes the mind of the arahant, which is free of the asavas. Awareness-release (ceto-vimutti) is used to describe either the mundane suppression of the kilesas during the practice of jhana and the four brahma-viharas, or the supramundane state of concentration in the asava-free mind of the arahant.
