This volume looks, in a simple way, at the fundamental Buddhist view called Emptiness or Interdependence: how things really exist. It includes a short teaching on Mahamudra and Dzogchen, approaches that bring us to experience this view directly.
Like stars, mists and candle flames; Mirages, dew-drops and water bubbles;
Like dreams, lightning and clouds; In that way, I will view all composite phenomena.

‘Everybody knows that things change, nothing is permanent, but we don’t see how much everything is changing. Do things change once a year? Or once a day? Once a minute or once a second? …If you look deeply, when is the time that things do not change? …When you cannot find a time that things do not change, then when is the time that things exist on their own?’
The Heart Wisdom series aims to make the teachings of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche available to a wider audience, by bringing his oral teachings to the written page.
