Empti / smart device for buddist


We suggest Empti as a plan to perform traditional religious ceremonies of the analog method, which are appearing against the current cutting-edge technology, in the 3rd manner. Empti is an abbreviation of ‘empty’ and ‘I’, which means ‘emptying me’.it was inspired from a kind of Buddhist ideology which teaches people not to stick to the idea that the ego is substance and the elements constituting me and world always exist. Empti accepts it and lets users meditate to have time to refuse the mindset there is the ego and the territory of ego exists.
