LIVING IN THE TRIPLE WORLD
Posted on Nov.09.2011 @ 01:19PM EDT by chontri

To live in the triple world (realm) means to live:
- in the realm of desires i.e. wants, greeds, lusts,...
- in the realm of forms, i.e. phenomena or material things,
- in in the realm of formlessness i. e. immaterial things.
It is called triple world, actually, it's just one world which manifests in three ways.

Can one who is living in the world like that be free from all of those things?
