Elaboration of “How Cognition of Emptiness Liberates Us”
Dr. Alexander Berzin
We need to prove, through logic, that there is no such thing as a “me” whose existence can be established by a self-establishing nature findable within it. When we understand that there is nothing corresponding to this impossible “me” and have rid ourselves of our unawareness of this fact, then we will no longer experience disturbing emotions or attitudes based on that unawareness. We will no longer experience compelling impulses to try to make that impossible “me” secure. We won’t build up any more karmic tendencies and we won’t activate the ones that are already there. In this way, we will experience a true stopping of uncontrollably recurring rebirth such that it never recurs again.
