Buddha taught emptiness to individuals wishing to be free from the cycle of endless suffering. It is a difficult concept to understand and is often misunderstood. Professor Newland will explain that meditations on emptiness are not removed from the mundane world but actually allow for a clearer perception of how everyday life is inseparable from emptiness.
