“Form is empty. Emptiness is form. Emptiness is not other than form: form is also not other than emptiness. In the same way, feeling, discrimination, compositional factors, and consciousness are empty. Likewise, all phenomena are emptiness; without characteristic, unproduced, unceased, stainless, not without stain, not deficient, not fulfilled.”
– The Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra
