The Heart Wisdom series aims to make the teachings of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche available to a wider audience, by bringing his oral teachings to the written page. This volume looks, in a simple way, at the fundamental Buddhist view called Emptiness or Interdependence: how things really exist. It includes a short teaching on Mahamudra and Dzogchen, approaches that bring us to experience this view directly.
Like stars, mists and candle flames; Mirages, dew-drops and water bubbles;
Like dreams, lightning and clouds; In that way, I will view all composite phenomena.

‘Everybody knows that things change, nothing is permanent, but we don’t see how much everything is changing. Do things change once a year? Or once a day? Once a minute or once a second? …If you look deeply, when is the time that things do not change? …When you cannot find a time that things do not change, then when is the time that things exist on their own?’
