The Disposition to Buddhahood

buddhaIf Buddha Nature were not present,

there would be no remorse over suffering;

there would be no longing for nirvana,

nor striving and devotion towards this aim.

That with regard to cyclic existence and nirvana

their respective fault and quality are seen

―that suffering is seen as the defect of cyclic existence

and happiness as the excellence of nirvana―

stems from the presence of the disposition to Buddhahood.

―Maitreya, Uttaratantra
