“The color of the mountains is the body of the Buddha; the sound of running streams is his great speech.” Dogen

The urban sprawl is the body of the Buddha; the buzz of the streets his great speech.

..."A dog, Buddha-nature" - there is no need for "nature." "A dog is Buddha" - "is" is superfluous. "A dog, Buddha" - still redundant. "Dog!" - that's is enough! Or just "Buddha!" You have said too much when you say "A dog is Buddha." "Dog!" - That is all. It is completely Buddha.
