Buddha taught that "with our thoughts we make the world." Take a peek behind the curtain and see how our own mind with its individual feelings, thoughts and perceptions actually creates the world that we live in each day. During this series, we will look at the wisdom of karma and emptiness as a source of freedom. Our mistaken view of reality—that it is fixed, unchangeable and exists separately from our mind—is the underlying cause of our suffering and problems. By understanding Buddha's teachings on emptiness or Ultimate Truth, we can cut to the root of this misunderstanding, eliminating the deepest source of our pain and suffering.
