Because nirvana represents an advanced form of samadhi or jhana Hinduism acknowledges it as Nirvikalpa Samadhi, Buddhism, as Ceto-vimutti Samadhi.

Nirvana is such an absolute transcendent state or place and it is totally a religious and spiritual term which refers to a place of peace where there is no desire, no sorrow, no feelings, and no sin but a place of happiness. After death the soul leaves the physical body which we recognize as different name line he is so and so, she is so and so, he is my father, he is my brother etc. But just after death there no any human relationship but soul will be gone to a place which we call heaven.

But all soul will not enter to heaven it may go to hell also which completely depends on God (jesus). In brief I share it but there is a long debate on this topic which can't be written here.

Kia said: (Nov 23, 2013)  
Um. Buddhism doesn't have a trident shaped symbol Sikhism does. So there kind of isn't really a right answer.

PS: the symbol of Buddhism is a wheel.

Salvation is what you get life of eternal peace and joy after death. It can be achieved only through loving your God and your neighbors. Forgive and even love your enemy. This was said by Jesus.

We believe these principles are TRUE and good for salvation. Because, there's no rival or enmity if we love our enemy. So, we can maintain peace and joy untold.

The trident symbol is called 'Triratna' in Buddhism and represent the three things that Buddhists take refuge in namely:

A) Buddha - The Enlightened or Awakened One.
B) Dharma - The Teachings.
C) Sangam - The Community.

Ashwati said: (Dec 27, 2014)  
Is Nirvana a part of three jewels of Buddhism?

Jai Prakash Narain said: (Jan 7, 2015)  
Though "Nirvana" is not a part of three jewels of Buddhism it is the ultimate "Aim" of Buddhism.

Nirvana simply means annihilation of all the desires. It is to be achieved in life & not after death. We can extrapolate that Nirvana is must for ENLIGHTENMENT.

Anu said: (Feb 8, 2016)  
The question is most likely about the Trishula. When used in Buddhism it's a reference to the triple gem: buddha, dhamma, sangha.

Ravi Kumar said: (Jun 17, 2016)  
All right answers.

Anirudh.R said: (Aug 15, 2016)  
Literally means "blown out", as in a candle.

The term "nirvana" is most commonly associated with Buddhism and represents its ultimate state of soteriological release and liberation from rebirths in samsara. Is it?

The trident shaped symbol in Buddhism trident is a reference to the triple gem: Buddha, dhamma, sangha. Whereas Nirvana means "blowing out" or "quenching. ".

Nirvana is the earliest and most common term used to describe the goal of the Buddhist path.

Nirvana describes a state of freedom from suffering and rebirth, but different Buddhist traditions have interpreted the concept in different ways.
