…the Great Teacher T’ien-t’ai of China…basing his work on the Lotus Sutra, established the theoretical building blocks for the three thousand realms in a single life-moment. The Ten Worlds are – Hell, Hunger, Animality, Asura, Humanity, Rapture, Learning, Realization, Bodhisattva & Buddhahood. All human beings possess the Ten Worlds and can go from one of them to another within a single life-moment.
Spend More Time In Your Higher Worlds
The four noble worlds of learning, realization, Bodhisattva, and Buddhahood are hidden and dormant and cannot be seen. Even though the world of Buddhahood exists as a potential within us, it is hidden in the depths of our life. We need the seed of the Buddha to activate our Buddha nature. Visit (in-person or online) this Sunday for a brief lecture on the Ten Worlds by our Chief Priest.
