Emptiness

(skt.: shunyata; tib.: tong pa nyi) Emptiness (sometimes also translated as voidness) is a Buddhist idea which states that all phenomena are empty of any kind of self existence or inherent existence. Emptiness is the reality of the existence of ourselves and all the phenomena around us.

"Since the "I" that exists is merely imputed, there is nothing to cherish, nothing to cling to. Goodbye to depression, worries, and fears."
