Emptiness , hollowness , yes ; is that what all the Buddhas point out to , guiding us find the same within ourselves .Hence , what you said is true , but to understand , realize and dip in this truth , all the Buddhas stress the nature of change of sensations as the important point , in order to break the shackles of clinging to a self . Will post this subject as a new topic .
Sensation is not a concept, it is experienced here and now . Say for example if one has got mildly angry , or hatred arises , one can feel heat and tautness , surging through the body . The ears get heated up , the breath becomes hot , it is the truth , for buddhist , and for non-buddhist alike . What is there to say it is a concept . Its just but a change of cause and effect , like when 2 parts of hydrogen is added to 1 part of oxygen , the resultant combination gives rises to water . Similarly , when this happens in the mind , that happens as the sensation . Nothing buddhist ,or abstract about it . Universal truth , for one and all to practice and put to good use in daily life
I was not really seeking to engage with a lengthy commentary on my first post mentioning body fluids, which is why I said "I find it easier if I remember to just let go of concepts altogether."
In general, I don't think of my practice in terms of "all the Buddhas"
because that is a Mahayana/Vajrayana concept.
Anyway, I have nothing more to say in this thread, so moving on now.....
Have a lovely day.
What is Mahayana, what is Vajrayana , what is Theravada , what is Buddhism , i have no idea
So if its just one Buddha or countless Buddhas , doesn't matter , what matters is brutal honesty giving rise to Sila , Samadhi and Panna , which answers all our doubts , of which i have many
. As we keep steadfastly walking on this so very universal path of knowledge, the differences are bound to disappear . Dhamma can not be cloistered by subscribing oneself to such and such a view . Misery is universal , the way out is also naturally very universal .
Thank you for your wishes , wishing you too a very very bright and resplendent day ahead.
