  Samsara
Samsara is derived from saṃ¡Ìsṛ, "to flow together," to go or pass through states, to wander.
The basic idea that there is a cycle of birth and rebirth is, however, not questioned in early Buddhism and its successors, and neither is, generally, the concept that samsara is a negative condition to be abated through religious practice concluding in the achievement of final nirvana.
According to several strands of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition, the division of samsara and nirvana is attacked using an argument that extends some of the basic premises of anatta and of Buddha's attack on orthodox accounts of existence.

 Mosa-Dharma and Prehension: Nagarjuna and Whitehead Compared
In Buddhism this world of ceaseless flow and change is known as samsara, and to samsara is opposed nirvana, the world of nonorigination and nondestruction.
Nagarjuna’s central thesis is that whatever is supposed to be substantial, whether in the sphere of samsara or in that of nirvana is actually nothing but pratitya samutpada, which is translated as dependent co-origination.
That is, what appear to be things with substantial existence turn out to be processes to which many elements contribute, each of these elements being in turn nothing other than such a process.
