Example text

Actually egolessness is not a good word. Instead we could say no ego is full of itself. When you make it "lessness," you make it a thing. It becomes a statement that you have credentials, as if you had a passport. So egolessness becomes your credential, rather than an expression of sunyata. Ego; egoless; egolessness. Ta is "ness," right? And sunya is empty. " But somehow it doesn't quite make it when we say in English that ego/essness does not have any fullness, and therefore it is utterly full.

There is a particular term for the fellowship or the sangha of buddhadharma. " By "supreme" we do not particularly mean the supremacy of one-upmanship. We are simply saying that such a quality exists in its own right, and therefore it is above as opposed to below. The supreme sangha could refer to different levels of sangha, obviously-baby sanghas, adult sanghas, or highly developed sanghas.

You see, you don't have to resort to existence, which is the idea of form, rupa, body. You could say emptiness is full rather than trying to make it into a thing. Q: It's full of all the psychological dharmas and all of the lower dharmas of the phenomenal world?
