The Heart of the Buddha

Book coverWithout exception and without the need for analytical studies, we can say that we automatically have buddha within us. That heart of the buddha is a very open heart. That heart would like to explore the phenomenal world; it is open to relating with others. That heart contains tremendous strength and confidence in itself, which is called fearlessness. That heart is also extremely inquisitive, which at this point is synonymous with discriminating awareness. It is expansive and sees in all directions.

From The Heart of the Buddha: Entering the Tibetan Buddhist Path by Chögyam Trungpa, pages 6–7
