Emptiness 空性

"Form is emptiness. Emptiness is Form." is written in Heart Sutra and it means Interdependence is the foundation of existence. Every thing and phenomena on this planet is interdependent. Nothing can exist without interdependence on this planet.

Emptiness means absense of independent existence or self. Buddhism denies independent self by selflessness but accepts interdependent self. Human consciousness can hold either one of them. In Buddhism, self is a mere designation to the combination of the subtle body and the subtle mind. 

「色即是空 空即是色」は般若心経に書かれており、相互依存が存在の基盤であることを意味しています。この地球上の全てのものと現象は相互に依存しています。この地球上では相互依存することなしに何も存在できません。
