Manage episode 290312798 series 2496615
Buddha taught that the door to enlightenment depends on realizing the correct view of emptiness. The wisdom of emptiness realizes the way phenomena exist as opposed to the way it naturally appears to us. This wisdom cuts away ego grasping and gives us real freedom from disturbances of mind like anger, attachment, and jealousy. In this episode, we look specifically at the union of the two truths, emptiness and conventual truth.
There is no footprint in the sky, no ascetic on the outside, folk delight in impediments, the Realised are free of them.
There is no footprint in the sky, no ascetic on the outside, there are no constant conditions, no disturbance for the Buddhas.
—Buddha, The Dhammapada
