Many spiritual legends tell us to meditate on emptiness, for example, Santideva, Padamsambhava.

Meditating on the ego is so important every day, bringing emptiness into account must bring more into meditation when masters give us these instructions.

Do we have lectures on this site about emptiness or do you know of any authoritative texts about the subject of meditating on emptiness or helping us to understand what it is?

What comes to my mind is simply the Prajna Paramita Sutra, for example.

Thank you again.

So, genuine comprehension of an ego is equivalent to seeing that the ego itself is an illusion, empty, impermanent.

These subjects are touched upon in all of the books and courses. Here are some specific examples:
