Empty / Full

April 25, 2016

Within is void, without is void, like an empty vessel in space.
Completely full internally, completely full externally, just like a pot in the ocean.

Empty within, empty without, empty like a pot in space.
Full within, full without, full like a pot in the ocean.

(Hatha Yoga Pradipika IV.56)
