I'd like to know that in Sanskrit or in Sanskrit dictionary if "ākāśa" have the meaning of "śūnya",nothing or void or zero? Some Buddhist claim that ākāśa mean śūnya. Therefore Buddha never taught voidism. But Lord Buddha taught śūnya philosophy to atheists, there is no God nor soul. Not ākāśa which is one of 5 elements.
Sanskrit is very complex language akasa means avakkasa that is niruktha pata.. means space to do things its not void thats why vinyaka is called vingna harthara meaning one who destroys obstacles. that is why vinayaka is akasa abhimani devata, even though there are many like, 1. Lakshmi 2. shiva 3. Parvati 4. Vinaya have given in order, There is no room for obstacle that is akasa that why vinayaka is devata for akasa
Sunya - niruktha pata sam - total bliss or ananda -ya -gnana knowledge-- sam iti ya sunya - one whose body is bliss and knowledge to the fullest. After Niruktha Pata.. Now Buddha says God is Sunya. what is the meaning you derive.. God is Bliss and knowledge.. Buddhist followers Take the literal meaning like advaita..Aham Brahmasmi Im God
Note: Now your statement that Buddha preached lie to delude evil minded person. Now being Vaishnavite One should not see any wrong in God i.e. Buddha or vishnu or krishna. Now you see unintentionaly we are attaching wrong or dosha to God (God is one who can also preach lie to delude) Now this assumption dangerous because if According to Hindusim and your statement that Buddha preached Lie). now buddhist claim that its only hindusim which is following Lie. the concept of Krishna preaching will become lie. as buddha avatara is after krishna. Who will determine which one is lie. So its only our assumption is wrong, God or Avatara never preach lie that is understanding one should have. Then get the correct interpertation of Buddha teaching according to sashtras.. Then one being hindu can see that buddha teaching is corresponding hindu sashtras such as vedas.
