Question: What is emptiness?

Sri Sri: Emptiness is the doorway between the material and spiritual worlds. It is where you come to understand the nature of the spirit, if you do not know emptiness, then you cannot know the joy of the Being. The knack for experiencing the Being causes emptiness. From the emptiness begins the fullness.

On one side of emptiness is misery and on the other side of emptiness is joy.

That is what Buddha said: “The whole world is misery and what is to be achieved is emptiness.
