Do all living beings ultimately become enlightened? Do we have Buddha nature, the seed of enlightenment? These questions concerning an ordinary living being's potential to become a Buddha, the purest form of existence, are the main topic of this book. Based on the views of the three major Buddhist schools of Buddhist philosophy-Vaibhasika, Cittamatri and Madhyamaka - Geshe Sonam Rinchen explains how our minds, though stained by temporary defilement, are innately pure, luminous and cognizant and how we can become aware of the mind's clear light nature.
