Ching Ch'ing, a Chinese Ch'an master, asked a monk:
-What is the sound outside?
The monk answered:
-That is the sound of rain.
The master said:
-Sentient beings are upside down, they lose themselves in pursuit of things.
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?
