Not the same; not different

Screen Shot 2014-03-08 at 9.18.27 AMSamsara and nirvana are not the same, and they are not different. How?

Samsara is unreal and nirvana is real; therefore they are not the same.

Since samsara is not real, there is nothing to compare to nirvana.

Therefore, they are not different,

as difference implies a comparison, and none is possible

between the real and the unreal.
