Dear luisisrael,

I am a scholastic zero, but as I had seen he had collected the references very well in his book, so I guess it will be found inside. For one who likes to discover a little, I guess it's good to get the whole of his work.

The conclusion is more a candy and stimulation. Its always good to find something against ones own views in a nice pack. A sweet sour candy with release.

Hello all,

just read the book by Medawachchiye Dhammajothi Thero (The Concept of Emptiness in Pali Litearture).
Is is quite a good book, though it needs an urgent review to correct misspellings.

Basically it shows how the view of emptiness is the same in early buddhist suttas and in nagarjuna's madhyamika.
Worth a reading, as it works as a harmonizer for theravada and mahayana sects, demonstrating how the view in both is the same and rooted in the same teachings from the Buddha.

kind regards

Luis
