Realize Buddha Nature

1450338_10152031390726154_459745116_nGenerally speaking, the ultimate message of Buddhism is that you possess Buddha Nature. In other words, you already and quite naturally have within you the qualities of complete enlightenment. But you need to realize this. The fact that you don’t have this realization is the reason why you are wandering in samsara.

According to Nagarjuna, the Buddha didn’t say that you need to abandon samsara in order to gain enlightenment. What He said was that you need to see that samsara is empty, that it has no inherent existence. This is the same as saying that you need to recognize your essential Buddha Nature.

―Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
