"Emptiness" (Sunnata): Emptiness refers to the Buddhist doctrine that all things are empty of inherent existence. It is the understanding that everything is dependent on other things and that nothing exists independently. Emptiness is the realization that all things are impermanent, and that attachment to them leads to suffering. Understanding the nature of emptiness can help to reduce attachment and increase acceptance of the impermanence of life.
