Nirvana in Mahayana Buddhism

Theravada and Mahayana Buddhism both have the same ultimate goal, which is Nirvana.

The main difference is that Mahayana believes in non-abiding Nirvana, that the enlightened being can freely go between the Nirvana realm and our everyday world, for the benefit of those still trapped in the cycle of rebirth.

This is because, in Mahayana Buddhism, the enlightened being sees beyond the duality of Nirvana and Samsara.
