That's how I understand it...in Chinese there's a saying "somethingness is easy to deal with, nothingness is very difficult."
If someone holds on to "nothingness", it'll become another trap, it is much worse than the trap of holding on to the belief of there is something.
Buddhism teaches the Middle Way, so when it teaches us emptiness, it does not mean there is nothing. We should always remember this and do not fall into the trap of nothingness.
Again it seems to me this website has no adminstration at all. Does it belong to an affiliate of the FPMT? Can somebody please inform the webmaster? I think we need a qualified teacher here to give us guidance sometime.
