What is Nirvana and where is Valhalla?

Nirvana is not a place but a state of bliss to which Buddhists aspire.

In Sanskrit it means the “going out” of a light.

Early Buddhists used the word to describe the extinction of the fires of cravings.

Valhalla, in Norse mythology, is the heavenly hall of slain heroes.

It also represents a state of bliss, but one in which the dead feast and fight each other for sport.
