DB 12: The Wisdom of Emptiness Starts November 17

Finally, the practitioner learns how to cut the delusion that is at the root of all suffering, the primordial misconception that there is an intrinsic self. Buddha has found that no such self exists. Students will learn in particular the Middle Way interpretation of this emptiness.

Insight, vipassana, into this truth needs to be realized in meditation, so the practitioner learns how to access the subtler more capable levels of mind by achieving single-pointed concentration, samatha.
