Term of the day


Emptiness*

Emptiness is usually the description of Enlightenment . To the western mind, this description is often difficult to comprehend, leading to the idea that it is &quotnothing,&quot and therefore quite unattractive. Two points will help correct this view. First, &quotemptiness&quot can be understood as the Buddhist way of saying that Ultimate Reality is incapable of being described, much the way that many Christian theologians view the Christian God as beyond our human attempts to describe. Second, the &quotemptiness&quot should not be thought of an another place. Instead, it is identical to the world or universe humans experience in this life. In this way, it is much like the Hindu notion that this world is simply maya (illusion), which prevents humans from seeing the true unity of the cosmos (which in Hinduism means the identity of Atman and Brahman). Thus emptiness and the phenomena of this world are the same, or as the Heart Sutra says, &quotForm is emptiness, emptiness is form.&quot
