Emptiness in Brief, a Very Ordinary Matter Indeed
This short essay reflects various discussions with Peggy Morgan about everyday religion in Japan, held on the ground in Kyoto in the mid-nineteen-nineties, and also reminiscences of Edward Conze whom we both knew at Lancaster in the late sixties and early seventies. We probably also discussed “emptiness” in brief.
Keywords: emptiness, Prajñāpāramitā, Conze, Zen, field-work, hanging scrolls
