The topic for this evening is emptiness as the basis for liberation. Emptiness is an insight which we find in all the levels and dimensions of Buddhism, in all the different schools. It gets packaged slightly differently, but the basic principle is the same. The term ‘emptiness’ points to the insight which eliminates the habitual delusion of grasping at the world and finding things to hold on to.
