Abstract Agreements and convergence of the Buddhist concept of sunyata with the Bahá'í Writings.
Notes This article was first posted to in 2013, and then later reformatted for publication in Lights of Irfan in 2019.

This article is an expansion of the section on emptiness in a previous paper, “Buddhism and the Bahá’í Writings: An Ontological Rapprochement” (2007), which showed that the Bahá’í Writings and key Buddhist teachings were either in agreement or on a convergent path in regards to key ontological issues.
