Zhuan Lun Wang1, or King Zhuan Lun, resides in the Tenth Court of Di Yu (地狱 dì yù), where he passes judgement on the souls (魂 hún) that are brought to his domain.
1 Zhuan 转 means to change; shift; transfer; turn; and Lun 轮 is shorthand for "lun hui" 轮回 which means reincarnation.
The Tenth Court of Di Yu is located outside of the netherworld's (幽冥 yōu míng) Wo Jiao Stone (沃焦石 wò jiāo shí) and faces true east toward the World of Five Turbidities (五浊恶世 wǔ zhuó è shì)2.
2 The World of Five Turbidities is the world as we know it, defined by;
- decay, as characterized by the next four turbidities;
- views, namely, the wrong views3;
- afflictions, such as greed, anger, delusion, arrogance, and doubt;
- sentient beings that lead wicked lives and are in increasing suffering;
- human lifespan.
Unlike the world as understood by an enlightened being, that sees past the Five Turbidities and can escape the never-ending cycle of reincarnation.
3 "the wrong view" is that false reality we invent and construct for ourselves based on our misinformed perception of everything. Wrong views, according to the Buddha, are the source of all harmful actions of our body, speech and mind that trap us in an endless cycle of suffering known as samsara.
