All living beings are entities of the Mystic Law and as such are equal. In that sense, all life is connected to the Mystic Law and therefore endowed with the Buddha nature.

Among all life forms, human beings are unique in their ability to manifest the power of Buddhahood in character and action. To do so, the heart, the spirit, is crucial.
