Meanings missed.

Greetings fellow readers,

May you be well and happy. The Theravada interpreters / translators of the Pali Canon will have to point out the entire meaning of emptiness found in the 2 Sunnata Suttas and the Maha – nidana sutta for there to be a progression to Nibbana. Others are aware of the entirity of emptiness and that it was the union of emptiness as an attribute and dependant origination that enlightened Siddhattha to full awakening.

This emptiness is such a wonderful subject to explore, and during the process the mental attachments fall away to pure empty awareness. This is the true middle way, seeing both existence and non existence, non self and illusory self, this self creation is important for daily function in the community.This requires integration. Ultimately all phenomena are empty. The science tells us everything is made of atoms which are 99.9% empty, the remaining .1% is….. , maybe, faster forms of light giving the illusion of form, which is in essence what all form is made of. Thus all forms are empty, it is the varying density of atomic structure that creates form and fullness for convention of understanding. Attachments arise through the mentally created self as explained in dependant arising, all phenomena arise dependent on dependently arisen factors empty of self, self appears on completion of form, animate or inanimate, through the mind of delusion andƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  not knowing.

I could go on forever about this, however there are others who can do better.

May all beings attain Nibbana

Peace and Happiness

    Dhamma is the universal truth. according to Dhamma, the Nothingness is a point where there is neither self nor God as other, but a point wherein all things are just what they are. (Mountains are mountains and rivers are rivers). Therefore this point (place) is the ultimate point in which all existences, subjective and objective are located. However, this point as the horizon of all things is itself not a thing, nor is it negation of things, a relative nothingness, that is Sunyata emptiness. In Modern science, the nothingness or Sunyata emptiness is a condition similar to Singularity where all known laws of physics break down and can easily be speculated that the consciousness residing outside the known four dimension of the universe.

    May I invite Pundit Chandrasoma for some constructive critisism.
