To the Nepali shamans Peacock feathers symbolize the all seeing eyes if the Gods.
That is, why a headdress of Peacock feathers is worn during shamanizing.
As Medicine Gifts for Bhola and also for the other Nepali shaman teachers I had brought Peacock feathers.
Peacock also can lead a practitioner from darkness to light! 🙂
And Peacock can eat poison, without getting sick!
I had encounters with wild peacocks at home in Ontario of all places!
We also saw 3 young Peacocks on a Tree in Chitwan National Park, while on our Elephant back tour 🙂
On an early morning Elephant back ride in Chitwan National park:
We were out early – to see Rhinos
But none appeared….
We saw the Peacocks and a lot of other Birds, however 🙂
There also were Tiger paw prints at the watering hole….
Very “Nice prints!! Always RIGHT in the verry middle of an Elephant foot print!
When I held out my left hand, I could sense no Tiger, just the very clever guides , creating some “artwork”….
…So iffff the paying tourists do NOT see any Rhinos on these outings, THAT is the reasonable explanation, Why!
“The Tiger drives them away, madam!” 😉
… It is well known…. and a good trick! 🙂
Further down the trail however, there were another set of large Cat prints – this time in the right step sequence and also slippage in the wet mud…
… A little small for a Tiger, but maybe a young Leopard?
