So what exactly is Buddha nature? It is the sky-like nature of our mind. Utterly open, free, and limitless, it is fundamentally so simple and so natural that it can never be complicated, corrupted, or stained, so pure that it is beyond even the concept of purity and impurity. As it is said, “It is simply your flawless, present awareness, cognizant and empty, naked, and awake.” —Sogyal Rinpoche



While a sailor has a boat, he should cross the ocean; . . . while a poor man has a wish-granting cow he should milk it; while a traveler has a superb horse, he should ride it to faraway places. Now, while you have a precious human life and a teacher who embodies the buddhas of the past, present, and future, think with great joy and enthusiasm how you will travel the highway of sacred Dharma, drawing ever closer to the ultimate goal of liberation and enlightenment. —Shabkar
