Two frogs, two days. I am a huge animal totem believer, truly agreeing animals do send us messages and give us clear direction. I have a hawk that's been gracing me with its presence lately and I'm loving every minute. So my message here is to encourage you to pay a bit more attention to what's actually happening in the moment and take notice when mother nature sends you a frog, cardinal, bee or a mouse.
St Francis is the patron saint of animals. Great find from rosamystica - new metals made by casting vintage pieces.
It features St Francis preaching his sermon to the birds with a rope-edged border.
The back of the medal has St Francis' blessing to St Leo in Latin:
May the Lord
bless you and keep you.
May He show His face to you
and be merciful to you.
May He turn His countenance to you
and give you peace.
Born in Kham in Eastern Tibet, Sogyal Rinpoche was recognized as the incarnation of Lerab Lingpa Tertön Sogyal, a teacher to the thirteenth Dalai Lama, by Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lödro, one of the most outstanding masters of the twentieth century. Jamyang Khyentse supervised Rinpoches training and raised him like his own son. In 1971, Rinpoche went to England where he received a Western education, studying Comparative Religion at Cambridge University. He went on to study with many other great masters, of all schools of Tibetan Buddhism, serving as their translator and aide. With his remarkable gift for presenting the essence of Tibetan Buddhism in a way that is both authentic and profoundly relevant to the modern mind, Sogyal Rinpoche is one of the most renowned teachers of our time. He is also the author of the highly-acclaimed and ground breaking book, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. Two million copies of this spiritual classic have been sold in 30 languages and 59 countries. It has been adopted by colleges, groups and institutions, both medical and religious, and is used extensively by nurses, doctors and health care professionals. Rinpoche is also the founder and spiritual director of Rigpa, an international network of 106 Buddhist centers and groups in 23 countries around the world. He has been teaching for over 30 years and continues to travel widely in Europe, America, Australia, and Asia, addressing thousands of people on his retreats and teaching tours.
