In Buddhism Samsara means, “the process of coming into existence as a differentiated, moral creature.”It is also the “continuous movement” or “continuous flow” in referring to Buddhism as a cycle of birth and death. All beings in the universe are involved, and it can be escaped only through enlightenment. Samasara is associated with suffering.
The beginning point of Samsara is not evident. It is almost like finding the beginning of a circle. All living things suffer in Samsara for a unbelievable time, and they do so until they attain Nirvana.
