About "Shunyata"
Today the world is besieged with violence of all kinds, physical, mental and psychological. Man seems to be searching for that elusive inner peace and harmony and in this search unleashes more violence. It is herein that the ancient Buddhist and Hindu philosophies need to be re-visited – philosophies that we have lost sight of. Emptying oneself of ego, fear of pain, illness, old age and death by implicit acceptance of suffering (‘dukhasatya’) will lead to understanding the cause of suffering (‘samudayasatya’) that in turn will lead to a luminous mind with consequent attainment of state of inner harmony and ‘ananda’ (bliss).

Essaying the philosophy of Shakyamuni Gautam Buddha, “Shunyata” is a dance and music production by the Grammy Award winners, the Buddhist Monks of the Sherabling Monastic Seat and the Kathak Maestro and Diva, Guru Shovana Narayan with her Asavari Repertory. 

Set in four acts, the production is a journey through the experiences of Emperor Ashoka, Kisa and the Mustard Seeds and of Sujata and Milk Rice. Each of these experiences essay the time immemorial quest and fears that each person goes through and for which answers have to be found by each within himself or herself. Nothing could be more true than the ancient Prajnaparamita Sutra verse namely: “Form is emptiness, emptiness is form; Emptines is not separate from form, form is not separate from emptines; Whatever is form is emptiness, whatever is emptiness is form” (Prajnaparamita Sutra)
