Analytical dhamma for beginners

Three Worlds*

The Buddhist world system is different from the other religions; it is broadly divided into three worlds; i.e.; the Desire world (Kama loka), the Form world (Rupa loka), and the Formless world (Arupa loka).


In these thirty-one planes of existence: there are eleven in the Desire world; sixteen in the Form world; and four in the Formless world.


The Desire world is again divided into the fortunate and the unfortunate planes of existence; the fortunate plane consists of the Human and the Celestial beings, there are seven of them; the unfortunate plane consists of the four states of woe from the Hell beings to the Asuras or Demi-gods.


The Form world is divided into sixteen different planes.


The Formless world is divided into four different planes.


The Lord Buddha said in Samyutta Nikaya I.19 that “In this Jambudvipa there are indeed very little gardens, grove, flat land or lakes on earth, but mostly precarious cliffs, torrential rivers, bushes and high mountains; likewise beings wandering in samsara, they are indeed very few reborn as human or devas, but mostly reborn in hells, animals or ghosts.”


* Loka
