One of the most important concepts of Buddhism is that of Emptiness. Often misunderstood, the term is at the heart of Buddhist teaching. In these lectures, we explore how to interpret the information found in the famous Perfection of Wisdom literature. At the same time, it is important to understand that the doctrine can be seen through the lens of modern approaches to science, cognition, and philosophical discourse.
