Each and every living being has within them the seed or potential to become a Buddha – this is our Buddha nature. To follow the Buddhist path to enlightenment there is no need to change our external lifestyle, but we do need to change our ordinary view that we are the centre of the universe and that other people and things derive their significance principally from the way in which they affect us. By developing a more realistic view of the world, based on the equality and interdependence of all living beings, we shall naturally develop good intentions towards them.
