Comment on Buddha's Emptiness

"Emptiness makes everything possible. If it were not for emptiness, nothing would be possible because everything would be fixed, solid. If everything is solid and fixed, then nothing can change, nothing will happen, nothing will improve, nothing will get worse.

Emptiness explains why everything is always changing, why everything happens to everyone, and why we can improve. It explains why those who don’t see things clearly and don’t relate to things appropriately sometimes develop tremendous ignorance and aggression. All possibilities are based upon emptiness. Emptiness provides space for everything."

taken from the teachings of a great Tibetan master, H.E. Tai Situ Rinpoche.
see, buddhist concept of emptiness does not mean total voidness.

best wishes and many thanks!
