All mortals have the Buddha-nature. But it is covered by darkness from which they can't escape. Our Buddha-nature is awareness: to be aware and to make others aware. To realize awareness is liberation.

You, monks, should not thus cultivate the notion of impermanence, suffering and non-Self, the notion of impurity and so forth, deeming them to be true meaning of the Dharma, as those people searching in a pool for a radiant gem did, each thinking that bits of brick, stones, grass and gravel were the jewel. You should train yourselves well in efficacious means. In every situation, constantly meditate upon the idea of the Self, the idea of the Eternal, the Bliss, and the Pure... Those who,desirous of attaining Reality, meditatevly cultivate these ideas, namely, the ideas of the Self, the Eternal, the Bliss, and the Pure, will skillfully bring forth the jewel , just like that wise person who obtained the genuine, priceless gem, rather than worthless detritus mispercieved as the real thing.

Good sons and daughters! Great love and compassion are called Buddha-nature. Why? Because great love and compassion always accompany the bodhisattva, just as shadows accompany things. All sentient being will without fail ultimately realize great love and compassion….Buddha-nature is called “state of regarding each being as one’s only child.
