Buddha Nature

maitreya2Like a Buddha statue within a lotus, honey in a beehive,

a kernel within a husk, gold within filth,

a treasure in the ground, the fruit of a bamboo shoot,

a Buddha image within tattered rags,

a king in the womb of a poor woman,

a precious image covered with earth,

similarly this Buddha Nature is present within all beings,

obscured by the temporary stains of disturbing emotions.

—Maitreya
