So, Buddhas cannot achieve Nirvana if they want to save beings?
I tought that being a Buddha was the same as being in Nirvana and while Nirvana, one can manifest to other beings in ways that may help them.
This is the kind of questions that always make me confused.
I think you understand it right. The point is made in Mahayana that the activity of Buddhas' to help beings appears effortlesly, like the moon's reflection in a pool of water appears effortlesly. This means that their help is not willed but happens automatically. It is called Unfixed Nirvana, apratisthita nirvana, to distinguish it from the sravakayana nirvana.
