All Beings Have Buddha Nature

Chinese calligraphy: "All Beings Have Buddha Nature, 眾生本具佛性" in semi-cursive style. Original work. Unframed.

All beings have this precious, kind, awake Buddha Nature. Here, it is our human nature. We don't think about it much, but we all want to love, and love to be loved. If a person knows love, and longs for love, he or she would know what is buddha nature. There is no doubt about that.

Neither Here Nor There

Tibetan word "Bardo", means "intermediate state", "in-between state". We are neither here nor there; we are floating in an uncertain space. Everything is possible. The vast possibilities totally overwhelm us.

Things are seemingly real. In the same time they are not. We could go either way. Only our mind is our anchor at this crucial time.

"Neither Here Nor There" - mixed media with metallic gold color on rice paper, mounted on canvas. The size is 36 by 26 inches. Signed with my name (seal).
