On a side note, I would highly recommend the autobiography of Khyentse Rinpoche called Brilliant Moon. There you have examples of the manifestation of fully realized Buddha nature.  :namaste:

Since this is a thread about Buddha Nature, I wanted to share a link to a free commentary by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche on Maitreya's Mahayana-Uttaratantra-shastra on Buddha Nature. I've been reading this commentary lately, which features two different English translations of the whole root text, followed by Rinpoche's commentary (which he bases on Mipham Rinpoche's commentary). Featuring the two different translations really helps shed more light on hard-to-interpret passages, and of course Rinpoche's elucidation is beyond helpful because it's in contemporary, conversational English and he uses the most helpful examples and analogies to make concepts clear and explain what the text is actually saying. Anyhow, here's a link to it. All you have to do is fill out the little request and send it to them and in a few minutes it's in your email box. Enjoy:
