Dear Friends:
Cula-suññata Sutta: The Lesser Discourse on Emptiness

A practitioner – not attending to the perception of people, not attending to the perception of forest – attends to the unitary perception of earth. Their mind enters into that perception of earth and acquires confidence, steadiness, and decision. They understand, “Whatever disturbances there might be dependent on the perception of people or of forest, those are not present here. There is present only this amount of disturbance, namely, the unitary perception of earth.”
