Sangai-Yui-Isshin — The Three Worlds #292
Following in Mother India’s footsteps, Zen Buddhism proposes its own version of the famous and beneficial teaching of the Three Worlds. In Vedic scripture this trio is described as the gross physical world, the subtle realm of the mind, and the causal level of formlessness. Zen poses them as the realm of desire, the sphere of desireless form, and the sphere of formlessness. Though very similar, Zen’s contribution to this ancient dharma teaching is valuable, adds several fresh aspects, and can be easily accessed and studied in this dharma art wisdom chart.
