Shūnyam could be a ‘Refuge’ if so applied. But Shūnyam is not a magic pill nor was it ever claimed to be so. It is simply the most stable platform from which to deal with ‘Suffering’.
If someday the teaching of Shūnyam were to become the core of a proper Education, the dealing with suffering in all its forms would be basic.
As basic as Reading, Writing and Arithmetic, part of the core curriculum for the grant of scholarship.
What is an ‘Education’ if it does not deal with this, the most fundamental and pervasive experience of the Human Condition?
