Every living being, the Buddha says, possesses the primordial ability
to be enlightened, to attain Buddhahood. Getting down to basics,
cultivate and learn the vinaya, samadhi, and prajna (discipline,
meditation, and wisdom) in earnest, eradicate greed, anger, and
ignorance all disheveled, return the mind to utter purity, deliver all
living beings, gain blessedness and wisdom in full, and ultimately arrive
at the realm of Buddhahood. Every living being capable of becoming a
Buddha, the Buddha images likewise manifest dissimilar appearances.
