Wendi Adamek is researching a sixth-century Chinese text on buddha-nature soteriology that uses the Nirvana-sūtra characterization of nirvāna as permanence, joy, self, and purity. Her work approaches this rubric and its instantiations as important historical artifacts that contribute to contemporary investigation into theories of agency and efficacy.
