[OceanofDharma] Quotes of the Week: Tapping into Buddha Nature

Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week

April 23, 2008 

My notion of Shambhala is to create enlightened society out of impossibilities.  The logic there is:  the more impossibilities we experience, as rawness and ruggedness -­ or even as pseudo-gentility -­ the more we find there is always buddha nature, which we can tap like finding fresh spring water in a dry highland valley, or for that matter, finding crude oil in the midst of a cotton field.
