Eckhart Tolle and Buddhism?

Din Robinson
I have been fascinated by these buddhist teachings, the more I learn about them, the more they're in line with western teachings, especially when it comes to "surrender" as Eckhart Tolle calls it, but it's really just emptiness from the point of view of a "somebody who needs to do something"

    Tommy McNally No, Tolle teaches about awareness and non-dualism, not dependent origination. Don't get me wrong, I like Eckhart Tolle but don't confuse what he's teaching with emptiness 'cause it's absolutely not the case. It's easy to find similarities between any two systems of spiritual development if one is inclined to do so, but it doesn't mean they're describing the same experiential territory.
