Defilements are defeatable. They are purifiable. And the Buddha, the innate Buddha, is discoverable. It is there. I always go back to my one example that I use again and again. Even though there is a [process] of washing [the] dishes, in reality the dirt that is being washed and the cup are two different things. [And] because they are two different things, this act of washing gives you the result of cleaning. Because if they were one, then the whole system, the act [or …] of purifying, accumulation, and all of that doesn’t work.
