From the East it came to the West.
In the East it was Buddha Nature.
When it came to the West it became Mystical.

The approaches to Buddha Nature had become complicated.

vertical line Can Buddha Nature be figured out.

Can the mind figure out Buddha Nature?

Is the Buddha Nature really Mystical?

vertical line Many are talking about Buddha Nature.

Many have written so many books.

There are Zen Forums where they talk of Buddha Nature.

What have they all come out of Buddha Nature.

Are their approaches working?

vertical line Many have claimed they have great awakenings, powerful samadhis.
Have they figured out Buddha Nature?

Is the Buddha Nature the same as the Spirit, the Soul.

It seems the Spirit or Soul exists only in the mind. Does Buddha Nature also exists in the mind?

Can  you find Buddha Nature outside the mind?

vertical line There is much you can understand intellectually about anything mystical, but knowing it deep down is something else.  For example- it makes sense to me intellectually that we are all one, but deep down I still feel an individual.

Yeah it seems to me all the oneness being talked about in all Zen Forums are nothing but intellectual.. It is like if it is not 2 it is 1 and if it is not 1 it is 2..

By thinking. By reading. Listening talks.

Can the mind figure out Buddha Nature?

Is the Buddha Nature really Mystical?
