Buddhanature, or tathagatagarbha, not only plays an essential role in the Mahāyāna world-view, but is encompassed within a large textual corpus stemming from Indian Buddhism, the most famous of them being the Uttaratantraśāstra, or Sublime Continuum, written by Asanga and imparted by Arya Maitreya. The key point of all such texts are that while the minds sentient beings have long been obscured by habitual thinking, their fundamental, changeless nature is perfect buddhahood. We are delighted to share with you the many traditional commentaries and modern explanations of buddhanature by authors such as Longchenpa, Karmpa Rangjung Dorje, Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Taye, Karl Brunnhölzl and more.
