I myself feel, and also tell other Buddhists that the question of Nirvana will come later. There is not much hurry. If in day to day life you lead a good life, honesty, with love, with compassion, with less selfishness, then automatically it will lead to Nirvana.
~His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama
I remember when I first started to follow Buddhism I got too caught up in the concepts of "Nirvana" and "Enlightenment" instead of just sitting, breathing and watching. I am now more aware that these day to day activities open our eyes to the already existent state of Nirvana or Enlightenment. Stick to the basics and you can not go wrong in my opinion.
