Buddha Nature is already present

because milk already contains cream.

No one ever made butter by churning water.

The prospector looks for gold in rocks and not in wood chips.

Likewise, the quest for perfect enlightenment only makes sense

because Buddha Nature is already present in every being.

Without that nature, all efforts would be futile.

—Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye
