Tirthankaras: Growth in the Wisdom of all Beings

A doctrine (Buddha-nature) in Buddhism teaches that all man possesses the germ of wisdom (Buddha) in them, which is the non-conceptual nature of space (dhātu) and the purity of the nature of mind. The idea, that mankind could become a whole race of Buddhas, or Tīrthaṅkaras (world-conquerors of Illusion), is nothing new in the Wisdom-tradition. It is not the glorification, and crowning of one divinized man (the road to Theocracy), which is the abomination of dominating sacerdotalism; but the growth in the wisdom of all beings. A matured enlightened people — is this not worth fighting for?

¹All Beings have the Buddha Nature
