    Are all sentient beings Bodhisattvas?

    Dear all,
    In the Pali canon ‘Bodhisattva’ appears to refer to the Buddha before his full awakening (the personality of the Jataka Tales, for example). But in the Mahayana all who have taken the Bodhisattva vows are Bodhisattvas.

    My question is: if all sentient beings are Buddhas-to-be, does that mean that ALL sentient beings are Bodhisattvas?

    Gassho,
    Myozan

    As a trainee priest, please take any commentary by me on matters of the Dharma with a pinch of salt.
