Snow Lions


The Snow Lion is one of my favorite mythological tibetan buddhist beasts. It’s also one of the Shambhala tradition’s Four Dignities.

The Snow Lion represents unconditional cheerfulness, Earth and East, a mind free of doubt, clear and precise. It has a beauty and dignity resulting from a body and mind that are synchronized. The Snow Lion has a youthful, vibrant energy of goodness and a natural sense of delight.

They are a regal, like a lion, but visually resemble dogs, much like the temple guardian of China, the Fu dog.
