The suffix 'ing' is used with a verb in a continuous tense. So you can say that it means something happening. For example, playing. 'Ing' here is showing that the play is going on.

"ing" means present continue,right now,but it can means a noun and a adjective too ex: " It looks very interesting with his playing." so in this sentence you have 2 uses of ing, as there are an adjective and a noun.
