Drawing from the seventh and newest volume of The Library of Wisdom and Compassion series with the Dalai Lama, Venerable Chodron will explore the subject of emptiness, one of the most central teachings in Buddhism.
Searching for the Self delves deeply into the topic of the ultimate nature of reality, presenting it from a variety of approaches while focusing on identifying erroneous views and leading to the actual mode of existence of all persons and phenomena. Engaging in this investigation will challenge deep-held beliefs and uproot habitually false views.
