AbstractHua-yen Buddhism's description of a mutually interdependent,groundless universe symbolized by Indra's net has parallels with the postmodern position on textuality. The Buddhist position emphasizes nonduality of self and world,a position,which avoids the problems of relativism. Whereas postmodernism has pointed out the lack of fixed meaning in language and thought,Buddhism extends the analysis to the sense of self as a separate entity felt as lacking groundedness and suggests that a solution may be found through letting go of the sense of self in meditation.
