It is not a matter of achieving Bodhi or attaining Buddhahood. Rather, you yourself become aware that your own mind has always been fully enlightened.

Just a reminder that the Numata Center has online some of their sutras & shastras available.

Here are the Vimalakirti & Srimala sutras:

I collect links on this page: mahajana.lap.hu. Under "Mahayana Resourses" you find many different collections of sutras and such.
1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

4 With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.
