Sentient means having the power of sense perception or sensation, or in general, consciousness. Being means the state or quality of having existence. Henceforth, sentient being means something that has a state of existence and it comes with the power of sense perception or sensation.

Where is its origin?

God created our soul and He sent it down to give life[1] to the zygote[2] which is a union of a sperm (from our father) and an ovum (from our mother). If a zygote does not receive a soul but has successfully attached itself to the wall of the uterus, it dies. In mankind, unlike all other mammals, the female must shed its uterus lining in order to remove the dead zygote by menstruation. Otherwise, the uterus will not be able to prepare itself for the next zygote to attach to its uterus wall.

A fetus[3] is actually a trinity of a sperm, an ovum, and a soul. The fetus grows in its mother’s womb to full term and then it go through a life cycle of birth, old age, sickness, and death.      

When a person dies, his soul leaves his body[4]. Though it is now a bodiless soul[5], it still has the power of sense perception or sensation. To differentiate a bodiless soul from the soul that is thriving inside a human body, we give it a name, sentient being. Initially, the sentient being just wanders around his former dead body not knowing what to do. Perhaps, it feels sad, at a total loss, in a state of anger, indignation, distressed, sorrow, and is always in search for the previously present but now perished five senses[6] that were spontaneously deserted from it. It takes time for it to realize that it has now lost all five senses of perception. With this understanding, it soon leaves its decayed corpse or ashes, if its former body was cremated.

Where will it go then?

It may stay buried in its grave or may wander about the surface of the Earth, aimlessly. Yes, it can be just about anywhere. In other words, the sentient beings as a whole are all around us. We cannot see them. Some people somehow can see ghosts. Through this small group of people, we get to know the existence of ghosts, which are essentially sentient beings.

Who is supposed to take good care of the sentient beings?

Please let me refer to some interesting religious beliefs that discuss about death and with that, religious doctrine strictly meant for the sentient beings.

One, in Islam, during the burial[7] of a Muslims, the message of the Janazah prayer is clearly telling the soul in the deceased to stay buried in the soil and wait for Allah to come and pick him up one day. 

Two, in Buddhism, and strictly in accordance with[8] the Maha Prajnaparamita Hrdaya Sutra, that was written by Tang Tripitaka in 649 A.D., the core message to all the sentient beings is to gather inside a temple and listen to the monks or nuns chant the Heart Sutra dozens of times a day. At the temple, the sentient beings are supposed to wait for the ship[9] to bring them to the other shore. So long as the sentient beings do not wander in the human society, they can soundly forgo their power of sense perception or sensation and therefore, be at peace with their current state in which all five senses of perception had deserted them. Since they still can perceive or sense the emotions of the monks or nuns, therefore, the monks or nuns must practice how to forgo all their desires[10]. This is a must condition for monkhood.

Very Important! Monks or nuns are not supposed to leave the temple and wander in the human society, with the exception of novice monks or nuns. Why? The sentient beings will follow the monks (or nuns) wherever they go. They are then as good as bringing along with them the sentient beings on an expedition back to the human society where they once again perceive the five senses of a living person, and worse still, ordinary people’s emotional desires.    

Three, in Protestant Christianity, the sentient beings are given a simple name, those which are asleep. With that, it tells the sentient beings to just go to sleep and hence, not use their power of perception or sensation anymore. Please refer to the Bible, 1Thessalonians chapter 4:13 to 18.

13: But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14: For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

15: For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

18: Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Four, in Catholic Christianity, the sentient beings are supposed to gather around the columbarium built within the church compound. The columbarium houses the urns of the cremated remains of deceased Catholics. Notice, this is a commonality with the believers of the Buddhist faith who house the urns of the cremated remains of deceased Buddhist followers in a Buddhist columbarium. The common message to the sentient beings who were Catholics before their death, is somewhat similar to what is taught in the Heart Sutra.

Summing up, the True Lord had created the human soul that goes into every single baby before it was born. Seeing the soul has now left its former body, it must be well-taken care of[11].    



[1] This is a piece of spiritual information. It is impossible for the author to prove it. However, the community of scientists and medical doctors can work together to prove it. However, they must put down their ego first and be humble to accept the fact that they do not know enough. The author is merely giving them a lead in their research in this topic.

[2] (Biology) the cell resulting from the union of an ovum and a spermatozoon.

[3] Scientists and medical doctors could not detect the presence of a soul in our human body or in a fetus.

Note 1: Could not detect and not able to detect are two totally different things. However, scientists and doctors cannot put down their ego and admit that they could not detect the presence of soul in our body. Note 2: If doctor can see or detect the soul that resides in our human body, the worse nightmare that could happen to human civilization is a soul-transplant operation.

Note 3: Reincarnation is the fallen angel’s way of inducing a soul-transplant. The author is not going to share the detail which is beyond the theme of this book.   

[4] Death, is the actual state of transition from this world (人界) to the next, in the Chinese language 地界 or The World of the Sentient Beings. Researchers had recorded a soul leaving the body after death. The author leaves the discussion as it is now. It is beyond the theme of this book.

[5] A soul has no form, or substance.

[6] A soul loses all these five senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch upon leaving the human body that has (just) deceased.

[7] The Muslims of the community gather to offer their collective prayers for the forgiveness of the dead. This prayer has been generally termed as the Salat al-Janazah (Janazah prayer).

[8] Among the three scriptures, Siddhartha Sakyamuni Buddha's basic tenet of a complete life cycle includes birth, old age, sickness, and death doctrine (563 - 480 B.C), five hundred years later the appearance of "Maha Prajnaparamita" doctrine (circa 100 B.C.) and Tang Tripitaka’s Maha Prajnaparamita Hrdaya Sutra doctrine (649 A.D.) doctrine, obviously, the "Heart Sutra" is the most practical. We can also say that the two earlier Buddhist scriptures did not meet the God’s expectation to take good care of the sentient beings.

[9] Who set sail the ship? To the best of the author’s understanding, He must be Guan Shi Yin or the True Lord, Lord Jehovah. Please read Appendix B: Guan Shi Yin.

[10] Note: Other than monks and nuns, the common people are not supposed to practice how to devoid themselves of all desires. At a bare minimum level, they have a mission to take good care of their family members. 

[11] Tang Tripitaka translated the word Lokitesvara as Guan Shi Yin. In Sanskrit, Lokitesvara means, the Lord (or King) who takes care of the World. In this case, the World means The World of the Sentient beings.  Please read Appendix B: Guan Shi Yin.
