world of endurance ［忍土・忍界・堪忍世界］ ( nindo, nin-kai, or kannin-sekai): Also, land of forbearance. The sahā world, or this world, which is full of sufferings that must be endured. The Sanskrit word sahā means earth, but its root, sah, means to bear or endure. For this reason, in Chinese sahā was rendered as endurance. In Chinese translations of Buddhist scriptures, the word sahā was at times left in its Sanskrit form and rendered “sahā world,” and at times translated to mean the “world of endurance.” See also sahā world.
