Interdependency -- Selected comments on the Buddhist causal law of interdependency (Sanskrit: pratityasamutpada) which is said to be the Buddha's highest insight just prior to his enlightenment, and it is called the central philosophy of Buddhism. The Buddha's causal law must be understood within its relationship to Emptiness as defined by the two truths doctrine.
Emptiness -- The doctrine of emptiness (sunyata: openness) is NOT nonexistence but the lack of a permanent, independent self-nature (svabhava) of all dharmas (= factors of experience: people, objects, events, ideas). This means that dharmas exist but are indeterminate and unfindable in any final or absolute sense. To fully understand emptiness it must be considered within the doctrine of the two truths involving its relationship to Interdependency, otherwise misconceptions occur.
