In Theravada Nibbana is portrayed as distinct from samsara, while in Mahayana Nirvana is portrayed as being identical with samsara.  Can anyone explain this apparent contradiction?

Buddha compassion arises to meet the various needs of sentient beings. The teachings received correspond to different needs.
