The word shoonya means ‘voidness’ or ’emptiness’. It is used very much by Buddhists to describe the indescribable state of nirvana (supreme enlightenment). In this context it does not mean, as so many people think and write, a state of nothingness; it means exactly the opposite: a state of totality, of oneness, devoid of ego, devoid of even the slightest turmoil, craving or dissatisfaction.
