The Pleasure of the Snow Lion

Book cover
In the Shambhala teachings, the snow lion is connected with being perky, enjoying the freshness of the highland mountains. The snow lion is vibrant, energetic, and also youthful, roaming the highlands where the atmosphere is clear and the air is fresh. The snow lion is not perked up by temporary situations but experiences unconditional cheerfulness. Just as the snow lion enjoys the refreshing air, the perky warrior enjoys continous discipline. For the snow lion, discipline is not a demand but a pleasure.

From Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, pages 165 to 166.
