Description

The Wisdom of Emptiness

SPECIAL TALK with Glen Svensson

MON | 19:00 - 21:00 | 11 June


ABOUT THE EVENT

The full understanding of emptiness is said to be the wisdom that sets us free from compulsive repetitive unhelpful unenlightened behaviour. But what exactly are we empty of? What are all of our experiences empty of? Is Buddhism saying we don't exist? No.

But it is saying that we are empty of the unrealistic and hallucinated sense of a fixed ego or fixed essence in our personality and the events which have shaped our sense of who and what we are. And it is saying that this superstition of a fixed essence or entity is deeply deeply unhelpful and the root of all our problems.
