Quotes from The Jewel-Heap Sutra, Vol. 58 

(Mahāratnakūṭa Sūtra)


“What are the seals [marks] of the predisposition-nature for buddhas? When an individual initially aspirates to bring forth the bodhi mind, he is regarded as one who shall [in the future] possess the bodhisattva precepts, enter the bodhisattva repository, obtain the dharani mind without distractions, never stray away from abandonment [to discard the illusory phenomena], realize the emptiness-nature, correctly cultivate the notion of signlessness with no desire, and keep his mind away from greed and taints. Furthermore, he can attain realization and enter the aggregates, elements, and sense fields. Whatever he performs will be aligned with his enlightenment, and he will gladly seek the Buddha wisdom. Thus, he will truly know the notion of non-arising nature with which to realize myriad dharmas based on its non-conceptual nature [non-arising nature], and will fully possess correct views, without illusory thoughts. These are the marks of the predisposition-nature for buddhas.”
