Reality and Appearance

957adc5f6d64d9851cac09667002ee01Buddha Nature is pure and yet is apparently associated with afflictions.

It is not afflicted and yet is apparently purified.

Its qualities are totally indivisible, and yet unapparent.

Its activity is spontaneous and non-conceptual.

Constituting what must be realized,

realization, its attributes, and the means to attainment,

Buddha Nature is the cause to be purified

and the latter three are the conditions of its manifestation.

―Maitreya, Uttaratantra
