Hi! My name is Brian.

This web site is dedicated to that aspect of spiritual awakening which is known in Tibetan Buddhism as "REALIZATION OF EMPTINESS",
and in Zen as REALIZING "NO MIND".

Some would say that this shift in consciousness is the first real step on the path to enlightenment and no-self.

The shift is sudden.
It takes less than a billionth of a second.
It reveals "THE EMPTY MIND"

"Be a hollow bamboo".
- Tilopa

A perfect metaphor
for the "shift"


The importance of intention

Personal experiences of emptiness:-
a sudden glimpse
7 weeks of emptiness
losing it
realization of emptiness
holding on to emptiness
alone for ever
10 years on
what is emptiness?
what is enlightenment?
the empty body
empty mind 2
