Claude Larre: The fundamental question is unique: what is the meaning of zang? The question is more specific in asking what is the meaning of zang when you speak of the twelve zang, and how are the twelve zang expressed in a hierarchy. The profound meaning of the zang is that their charge is to store the essences. They take from food the nourishing part, and they refine it to the point where it is at the same level of constitution as the specific nature of a particular individual and then they store it. In other words it is impossible to store things which are not on the same level as your own personal constitution. The essences are stored because they are refined.
