Mahayana Buddhist teachings are based on the principle of Shunyata (emptiness). This does not mean nothingness as a large number of people initially think. It is not empty, as we would think of an empty cup. Rather it describes the inability for us to accurately convey the true nature of reality. It covers the relationship of the smallest particles to those of galaxies and everything in between. It is the inability to describe the singularity of any object within the context that everything is connected to everything else, and though everything else. Perhaps the phrase from a Beatle’s song “just let it be” comes closest to the way I understand it now. Buddhist scholars have spent a lifetime exploring this concept; I do not claim to even begin to grasp it. However I felt a brief point is needed about this term.
