This uncompromising rejection of stable, findable existence in any phenomena as the profound basis for non-dual compassionate action is a radical challenge to our conventional sense of having an existent self that experiences solid objects, with its resulting dualistic approach to ethics. Its famous teachings on emptiness and its union with compassion has generated a range of interpretations, which are explored, particularly in the Indian as well as the Tibetan Kagyu, Nyingma, and Geluk traditions.
