Sunyata is a Sanskrit term which translates as “emptiness,” “spaciousness” or “voidness.” The term is derived from sunya, meaning “nothing,” “hollow” or “empty”; and the suffix, ta, meaning “-ness.”

In yoga, sunyata is the liberating feeling that arises during meditation, the sense of freedom from one’s thoughts and distractions.

Sunyata is also commonly spelt shunyata.
