There are two things that I want to explain about emptiness. The fisrt one I can explain and the second one is that I have nothing to explain. The one thing that I can explain is that people, their whole mind and habit is focused on words and a single word. When you say this is a diamond, then yes, it is a diamond and that is true in that reality. But when we say emptiness, it is not really emptiness. It is a state of mind. Appearance is emptiness but it itself is not emptiness. There is a clarity. These are a few things you have to combine without any creation from your mind. That is the meaning of emptiness.
