Shakyamuni Buddha talked about "the outside teaching apart from tradition". Since the teaching is not in the scriptures and the Buddha nature can't be found there either, where could we find the Buddha nature? Supreme Master Ching Hai points out: reading and reciting Sutras does not make a Buddha; worshiping Buddha does not make a Buddha either; let alone worshiping mountains and rivers. Worshiping mountains can make you a mountain, worshiping rivers can make you a river, and only worshiping Buddha nature can make you a Buddha. If we meet someone who knows how to worship, that person could help us to find our Buddha nature very quickly.
After we find our Buddha nature, we can have everything. We will have less and less sufferings. It doesn't mean that there would be no suffering, but that we have greater endurance, so we don't feel much even if there are sufferings. After we find our Buddha nature, it does not mean that the society would change; of course there will be some change, but we won't care if it's changed or not at that time. Since we have grown up ourselves, our power become greater so as to go beyond any hindrance and change any situation. Because we have power, and the spiritual power is the greatest. . Shakyamuni Buddha can do many wonderful things, Jesus Christ can save people from sickness and sufferings or help them attain liberation; it's all because they practice spiritually and develop their spiritual power.
