In this series we will explore the teachings on The Perfection of Wisdom, especially the extraordinary and profound teachings on emptiness, the ultimate nature of reality. By grasping at things, especially our self far too concretely, we perceive a world of limitation. We feel that real and lasting happiness is not possible, and that whatever happiness is possible comes from external things. Buddhas teachings on Emptiness help us to let go of mistaken limitations and instead to experience a joyful and deeply satisfying world of limitless possibilities. Buddhas teachings are subtle, challenging, invigorating and profoundly life-changing.
