"There are many types of philosophy, truth - seeking positions about what is. Buddhist philosophy has one special quality; that the awakened state is within, and we are in a state of readiness; it is ready to be discovered. It is said in a scripture, “All sentient beings are buddhas, but they are covered by temporary obscurations”. Every sentient being has as their nature original wakefulness – what in the general teachings is called buddha nature. Because of possessing this original mind, the buddha potential, everyone can become enlightened. Everyone is allowed to be a buddha; everyone has that ability, that readiness.
From ´Indisputable Truth´: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
