The nature of beings is always Buddha
 
As was said by the Third Gyalwang Karmapa in his Mahamudra Aspiration, " The nature of beings is always Buddha," which means that when you recognize the nature of things, which includes the nature of beings, you recognize that there is  no intrinsic need for beings to suffer.  Therefore you see that the nature of your realization and the nature of the suffering of beings is the same, but because beings do not have that realization, they are in [a seemingly] endless experience of samsara.  When you realize the nature of all things, you also realize at the same time that all beings could have that realization too but do not, and that knowledge automatically produces tremendous compassion.  …it is not an impotent compassion, because you also recognize how to help beings, or lead beings to that realization.
