the biggest tragedy

From the Buddhist point of view, there is really a big tragic that is happening all the time. The fact that all beings, like you and me, and specially those who are walking outside here, you know, sentient beings, even so they are adorned with buddha-nature – wherever they go, buddha-nature goes – they just miss it all the time. That is the biggest tragedy. It is so near, it is just so closed, it is right here in front, even closer than in front of you. But most of us, we miss it. That is the biggest tragedy.
