Buddha-nature (Skt. Tathagatagarbha or Sugatagarbha, Tib. te-shin mying-po): The pure essence potential to attain enlightenment that is inherent in every sentient being. It is obscured to varying degrees by afflicting emotions and subtle obscurations, but it can be actualized through the practices of moral ethics, meditation, and wisdom.
