September 24 2013 garden 034So what exactly is this Buddha nature?

It is the skylike 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
