"Buddha-nature exists in everyone no matter how deeply it be covered over by greed, anger and foolisheness, or buried by their own deeds and retribution. Buddha-nature can not be lost or destroyed; and when all defilements are removed, sooner or later it will reappear".
"Enlightenment exists solely because of delision and ignorance; if they disappear, so will Enlightnment. And the opposite is true also: delusion and ignorance exist because Enlightenment; when Enlightnment ceases, ignorance and delusion will cease also".
