Meditation on Emptiness

Voidness refers to an absence of fantasized, impossible ways of existing, such as truly established existence with respect to both persons and all phenomenon. In the case of meditation on the absence of a truly established identity for ourselves – the absence of an impossible false “me” – we need to generate a correct understanding and then practice seeing ourselves in light of it. One method for refuting the false “me” is to apply the “four point analysis,” which uses the line of reasoning called “neither one nor many.” Through frequent repetition, meditation builds this understanding up as a beneficial habit.
