In the earth beneath a poor person’s home, there may be an inexhaustible treasure, but that person does not know of it, and the treasure does not exclaim, “I am here!” Likewise, with the stainless treasure contained within the mind — the dharma that is inconceivable and without decay — not being realized, the suffering of being destitute is continuously experienced by all beings in many ways.

— Maitreya, Uttaratantra
