Shakyamuni Buddha taught that all suffering can be overcome by understanding its true nature. This is a profound and subtle process. It can take a while.
Patricia Anderson, “Good Death”
It is always with you, whether you realize it or not - Buddha nature is always with you.
You yourself as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserves your love and affection.
Everything has Buddha nature. - The Buddha
Everything IS Buddha nature. - Dogen
All things are just like that-they do not exist, yet do not not exist. And that they do not exist, yet do not not exist, is exactly what the Buddha teaches.
