Answer: Nirvana is recognition of the world as it is, without the bewilderment of the 3 ignorances.
1. When taking a body a person decides to be in that body. 2. There is now a separate self with separate experience and a unique mind. However, we are also part of the unity of awareness without the differentiation of a person. and without the object awareness of a person in a body. This ambivilant condition causes confusion. 3. In a constant attempt to resolve our confusion we assign meaning and importance and create our view of the world around us. We then wrongly assign our creation to others. These three ignorances taken together create bewilderment. It is this bewilderment that produces Samsara. Samsara is just what is from a bewildered view. Without bewilderment Samsara is Nirvana
