How incredible; how amazing; that emptiness is intertwined with compassion.
André A. Pais
No term is perfect, but perhaps inseparable, one with, of one taste, etc. Intertwined is a very visual thing, like 2 strings spinning around each other. Imo. I'm not native of the English language.
Geovani Geo lol. Usually ppl only say it is "incredible" and "amazing" due to "inseparability" or "interwined" because it was once thought to be distinct and separated.
The buddhist term used is "non-arisen" in the sense that "separation" never existed in the first place; therefore compassion is not the result of realizing emptiness, not a cause-effect relationship.
Geovani Geo Emptiness is for us to realize this heart (suchness) free from taints (essence, references) other than that, it has no purpose. It is not exactly a mental enterprise, quite contrary, it is the cessation of such proliferated activities.
The direct and simultaneity pointing to one's "heart" is another approach. The issue is when practitioners authenticate suchness pre-maturely with such approach without seeing through emptiness of "named phenomena", they ended up fooling and losing themselves in wonderland.
Of course, emptiness has no purpose. Even conventional space has no purpose. The moment "emptiness" gives raise to intellectual fabrications of any kind its already wonderland. The farther I can go with this right now, without any reference to any 'school' or 'teaching', is to say that 'emptiness' is the realization of absolute lack of references as time or location.
"Emptiness has a heart", is not pointing to any specific area of the body, its not some tantric teaching or approach. It is a an insight that occurred here regarding the all-good intent of impersonal suchness. But now, again, 'all-good' and 'intent' have no known moral or causal connotations that the localized conditioned mind could deal with in any way.
The question made using a 'what', makes no sense, John. As I wrote above: "The farther I can go with this right now, without any reference to any 'school' or 'teaching', is to say that 'emptiness' is the realization of absolute lack of references as time or location."
