What is this?

Emptiness in Buddhism is the insight that all phenomena lack inherent and independent existence. It is the realization that all things, including our experience and ourselves, are temporally and causally interdependent and contingent on other conditions. It is seen as a fundamental truth of experience, being both an ultimate truth in its own right, and a source of the insight of impermanence and the dependent origination of all phenomena. From this insight arises a profound sense of letting go into the flow of life and releasing attachment to self-bound parameters and conditions.
