KARMAPA • "All beings are BUDDHA by NATURE"




The nature of all sentient beings from ants on up is pure, in terms of the ground. In essence it is pure, but in appearance it is obscured or contaminated.

But the appernace of being obscured or contaminated does not harm the pure ground even the slightest. That, in any case, is present in a pure manner. Thus we can place our hopes in and believe in that.

What we can believe is that no matter how many wrongs and misdeeds we have done, at all times our nature is present in a stainless manner. It cannot ever be blackened or contaminated by our wrongs. Thus all the wrongs we have done and mistakes we have made in this life can be repaired, and we have at any moment the opportunity to become a good person. This is what I understand it to teach.

Therefore I would like to ask you to take this opportunity you have now and make the effort to become a good person and bring meaning to your life.
