My interpretation of the concept of nirvana is not that there is some sort of afterlife, but achieving awakening in this lifetime is sufficient as to prepare yourself and accept your own death. That the stillness of nonexistence will no longer be feared but welcome, as your role in the universe has been fulfilled.
