Part of the List of dharma_terms from the buddhist_ayurveda Course (skt220 ) on sanskrit_terms of ayurveda and dharma

= Buddha Nature =


When the buddha shakyamuni first realized buddhahood, he proclaimed:

How amazing! How amazing! How amazing! All living_beings have the buddha_nature; all can become buddhas. Only because of their polluted thin_king and attachments do they fail to realize it and to obtain certification.

The buddha_nature is the innate, inherent potential to become a buddha that resides in the mind of every living being.

buddha_nature in all beings dwells permanent and unalterable, throughout all rebirth, ever ready to develop itself as soon as the opportunity arises. (nirvana_sutra Ch. 26, quoted _Hobogirin_ II, 185ff, EB “buddha_nature”)

. . . The supreme, pure bright mind originally pervades the dharma_realm. It is not something obtained from any one else. Why, then, labor and toil with marrow and joint to cultivate and be certified? This is to be like the person who has a wish-fulfilling pearl sewn in his clothing without realizing it. thus he roams abroad in a state of poverty, begging for food and always on the move. Although he is indeed destitute, the pearl is never lost. Suddenly a wise person shows him the pearl: all his wishes are fulfilled, he obtains great wealth, and he realizes that the pearl did not come from somewhere outside. (ss IV]] 108-111)

“Showing him the pearl in his clothing represents pointing out to him his inherent buddha_nature.” (ss IV]] 111)

1) chinese: fo xing , 2) sanskrit: buddhata, buddha_bhava, buddhatva, 3) pali buddhata, buddhabhava, buddhatta.

see_also: buddha, daosheng (venerable).
