Emptiness: Exploring Reality
with Buddhist teacher Jan Mc Pherson

“… there is no greater method for experiencing peace of mind and happiness than to understand and meditate on emptiness.”
– Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

How do things really exist? Are things solid and real as they seem? Emptiness is the way things really are. It is the way things exist as opposed to the way they appear. Of all Buddha’s teachings, none are as far-reaching and transformative as the teachings on emptiness, the true nature of reality.

It is through our understanding of emptiness that we come to solve all our own problems and be of greatest benefit to others.

“If we dream of an elephant, the elephant appears vividly in all its detail – we can see it, hear it, smell it, and touch it – but when we wake up, we realise that it was just an appearance to mind. We do not wonder ‘Where is the elephant now?’, because we understand that it was simply a projection of our mind and had no existence outside our mind … Buddha said that the same is true for all phenomena; they are mere appearances to mind, totally dependent upon the minds that cognize them.” – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

In this course we will learn meditations on Buddha’s wisdom teachings, ultimate truth; emptiness and how to apply this wisdom to our daily life.
