Samsara

And if time is not real, then the dividing line that seems to lie between this world and eternity, between suffering and bliss, between good and evil, is also an illusion
Siddahartha, Herman Hesse

The term Samsara literally means world and 'aimless wandering about’ and refers to the experience of the world around us and the way we perceive it. In Zen Buddhism the phenomenal world is ephemeral and impermanent therefore a mere illusion.
