"Buddha nature" ("tath gatagarbha") is the innate potential in all living beings to become a fully awakened buddha. This book discusses a wide range of topics connected with the notion of buddha nature as presented in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and includes an overview of the s tra sources of the tath gatagarbha teachings and the different ways of explaining the meaning of this term. It includes new translations of the Maitreya treatise Mah y nottaratantra (Ratnagotravibh ga), the primary Indian text on the subject, its Indian commentaries, and two (hitherto untranslated) commentaries from the Tibetan Kagyu tradition. Most important, the translator s introduction investigates in detail the meditative tradition of using the Mah y nottaratantra as a basis for Mah mudr instructions and the Shentong approach. This is supplemented by translations of a number of short Tibetan meditation manuals from the Kadampa, Kagyu, and Jonang schools that use the Mah y nottaratantra as a work to contemplate and realize one s own buddha nature."
