Mama moose

We’ve had some spectacular animal sightings this summer, but my favorite has been the mama moose and her baby last weekend at the Cowgirl Yoga ranch (click on the image to see a larger version). A group of Cowgirl Yoginis were riding out and must have scared them from the trees where they usually spend the day; mama came running across the field closely followed by her baby. We watched as they circled the field to make their way back to the trees. It was breathtaking. In these moments when the path of humans and animals intersect, I am always reminded of the Sanskrit blessing lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu – may all beings everywhere be happy and free. The picture of the horses evokes the same sentiment – same field, the night before.
