Is your dog sentient? Are you?

Zen philosophies are influenced by Mahayana Buddhism, which teaches…

  • All beings possess Buddha-nature.
  • The Bodhisattva ideal is to share wisdom and insight for the benefit of all sentient beings.

Do you think of your dog as a sentient being? As sentient as you?
Or more so?
