Sunya or sunyata standing for emptiness is one of the most important concepts in Buddhism. This idea was first created by Nāgārjuna the founder of Madhyamika (the middle way). This concept can be analysed through two different aspects. Firstly, through the universe, which in this approach everything is empty of absolut truth, because all the creatures and phenomenon in the universe are related to each other in the universe and none of them is independant. Secondly, through the absolute, sunya is a complete and total adjective which is substantive and beyond the universe and due to its’ boundlessness cannot be defined and explaind.
This absolute, infinit and boundlessness existence cannot be defined in any language, so the best word to define it is being silent. The same approach could be found in ebn al arabi mysticism which refers to the essence of Allah (God). He belives there is no tull, adjective, feature for God in essence and can not recognizable due to having no resemblance with the human. In fact it is the level of indefinability. This article is a comparison between sunya and adan cocept according to two muslim and Buddhist ideologist.
