Great love and great compassion

Great love and great compassion are called Buddha-nature. Why? Because great love and great compassion always accompany the Bodhisattva, just as shadows accompany things.

All sentient beings will without fail ultimately realize great love and great compassion. Therefore it is taught, “All sentient beings are possessed of Buddha-nature.” Great love and great compassion are Buddha-nature. Buddha-nature is Tathagata.

—Shinran Shonin, Commentary on the Nirvana Sutra

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero.
