Overview

Emptiness tackles an oft-misunderstood topic in the Buddhist religion. Here, emptiness does not imply a nihilistic worldview but rather the idea that a permanent entity doesn’t exist in any single phenomenon or being. Everything exists in dependence on an immeasurable quantity of causes and conditions. An understanding of emptiness allows us to see the world as a realm of infinite possibility, instead of a static system. Just like a table consists of wooden parts, and the wood is from a tree, and the tree depends on air, water, and soil, so is the world filled with a wondrous coexistence that extends to our own mind and awareness. In lucid, accessible language, Geshe Tashi Tsering guides the reader to the realization of this infinite possibility.
