Thich Nhat Hanh Speaks On Emptiness

This is one of the most beautiful videos on this site! Most of the images are time elapsed photographs of beautiful flowers.

You see the flowers opening up and closing. You see the dandelion seeds floating around the field. You see flowers blooming and seeds flying through the air. How beautiful!

Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh talks over the beautiful images.

He uses the example of a sheet of paper to explain the concept of emptiness. Anyone can see the sunshine and the rain in the sheet of paper.

Thus the sheet of paper has to interbe with many non-paper elements. It is empty of a separate existence. It is interdependent on the earth, the rain, the logger, the sun and many other non-paper elements.

Like the paper, we are empty of a separate existence. We are interdependent on many non-human elements.
