Our fundamental nature is intrinsic. No sane, intelligent human being is impeded from being in touch with this basic nature. There is no one standing between us and it, no one is appearing like a mara to perform dances of distraction.
At any given moment, each one of us —even with no understanding of Buddhism— has the natural potential to realize we are completely and inseparably united with our intrinsic wisdom nature. We have never been separate from it for a moment. It is not a sometimes-there-sometimes-not quality, or an adornment that’s been attached or added on to us.
—Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche
