Is enlightenment same as nirvana?

A faithful Buddhist practitioner goes through many small and big enlightenments in his/her life time, gaining momentum of purification, clarity and wisdom each time, until the ultimate enlightenment is attained. Nirvana generally refers to the ultimate enlightenment but in reality, one can also experience nirvana and liberation in life. It is just the state of a transcendent mind that counts.
