10,000 world systems


The Buddha described a 10,000 world system, which was to say that there are literally innumerable solar systems.

A world system was the description for a sun or star with several planets revolving around it.

We now know that there are several solar systems through direct evidence with high powered space telescopes.

Nearly one hundred planets have been identified in the known universe up to this point.
