There’s nothing wrong with the sun. It’s just that we can’t see it

When ignorance is exhausted, we see our Original Nature. In the sea of suffering, beings don’t know they have this Buddha Nature. The Buddha’s teachings are all aimed at showing us this Nature (…). You practice with discipline, meditation and wisdom and break apart the false self. The false self covers our Buddha Nature so beings can’t see it. On a cloudy day you cant see the sun but that’s not to say there is no sun right? There’s nothing wrong with the sun it’s just that we can’t see it. Our Buddha Nature is just like this.” – Buddhist Master, hermit in the Zhongnan Mountains, China
