It’s WISDOM, not the mind, to realise the Emptiness

So therefore, to recognize the reality of phenomena, reality of things, we need to take some training first, to exercise first. It’s not too visible – actually you cannot see that through your physical eye. It is not something that really understood by your mind sometimes. But the most profound realization is not concept. It’s not mind anymore. Not in those categories of the mind. But still, we think our mind is understanding this nature. “My mind can see the emptiness of this phenomena.” What actually sees the reality, that emptiness of phenomena is wisdom. It’s not really the mind. It’s a difference. But at the beginning, it’s difficult to distinguish between these two [things]: wisdom and the mind. So, it’s okay to use our mind and to take examinations of each part, of each phenomenon.
