FBA Podcast: Appearance and Emptiness Are Inseparable

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 6 Jun, 2020 - 14:00

Karunagita explores emptiness through Padmasambhava’s advice to Queen Ngang Chung:

During the time of insight which is surrounded by a calm, gentle aura, openness and appearance are inseparable. The six senses come forth, though appearance and voidness are inseparable;
this is the real foundation, without which no means exists.

Talk given at Dhanakosa Retreat Center, 2017.
