Emptiness and dependent arising are two sides of the same coin. Dependent arising is a logical analysis that triggers the conclusion: There’s no “I” from its own side like some entity frozen in time and space, and therefore the “I” is empty of existing from its own side. Emptiness is the conclusion, the ultimate wisdom, you come to, having thought about dependent arising. During these teachings Ven. Robina will help us understand how we easily end up with the either of two extremes of inherent existence or nihilism, and discuss how the mistaken view of a dualistic understanding of subject and object pervades our mind.

Phenomena exist is in dependence upon their parts. There is a cup, but you won’t find cup apart from its parts. But we think there is, and our language cheats us. Our language is really tricky. It reinforces selfexistence.

(Ven. Robina Courtin)
