Sunya means Zero that emphasizes nothingness. Zero is important because without zero mathematics is incomplete. Sunya practice is to focus on your mind by detachments of what you can see, what you can hear, what you can smell, what you can feel, and observe how your mind is going. Sunya uses neutrality to replace the anxiety, agitated mind and focuses on relieving the mind. “Sunya is for Peace & Prosperity”, is to reset your mind for peace and re-regulate the breath, body, and mind. Sunya practice aims to achieve prosperity through a peaceful mind.
