What is Emptiness?

From RZA's The Tao of Wu
UPDATED: 2-21-17

Well, the Buddha didn't say "all is illusion," but I still like this! The Buddha said everything is impermanent and the belief in solidity or fixity is an illusion -- and the cause of suffering. The notion of the world as illusion is more of a Hindu thing, associated with Advaita Vedanta. The idea is that the physical world obscures the ultimate reality, and the ground of all being, Brahman.

  1. Very timely, and comforting, to be reminded of this.
