“A state of release (liberation) from uncontrollably recurring rebirth (samsara). An extinguished state of release — either an acquired one, in which all samsaric sufferings and their causes have been removed, or a naturally occurring one, in which all stains of impossible existence have always been removed. The Tibetan term means, literally, ‘a state beyond sorrow.'” Fair Use Source: https://studybuddhism.com/en/glossary/nirvana

This is the “enlightenment” of an Arhat or Pratyekabuddha. Contrast this limited “awakening” with Enlightenment – Bodhi – Awakening – 悟 and with the Anuttara-Samyak-Saṃbodhi – Enlightenment of a Buddha – 阿耨多羅三藐三菩提
