    Question 108 earthly temptations

    From Wikipedia: In Japan, at the end of the year, a bell is chimed 108 times to finish the old year and welcome the new one. Each ring represents one of 108 earthly temptations a person must overcome to achieve nirvana. <--- found at:

    I checked this out once myself. Turns out there aren't actually 108 named temptations - the number is just generally significant in those religious circles. It's more symbolic than an actual list, it seems.

    If anyone can contradict me and actually point out 108 temptations, please do! I'd be interested, too.

    6 senses the Eyes, ears, nose, mouth, skin and the mind x 3 aspects of time past, present, and future = 18 x 2 characteristics of one’s heart pure or impure = 36 x 3 preferences a person may like, dislike or be indifferent.
