Tibetan Buddhist monk, the Ven. K. C. Ayang Rinpoche, blessing the deer in Kyoto's Nara Park,
July 26th, 1985. He only asked once for a photo to be taken, and said "Take a photo now". No one saw the rainbow until the print was made. Rinpoche, on seeing this photograph, said he felt that his prayer blessing of the deer had been answered by the Buddha Amitabha at that very moment the photo was taken, had made contact with the deer, and that the power of His blessing appeared in rainbow form. Rinpoche also said that he prays that "Whoever keeps this photo with strong confidence and devotion will become inseparable from the Buddha Amitabha's mercy and compassion"
The day after I got this photo several Deer started roaming our yards and street... Mostly Stags... Coincidence? Neighbors hadn't seen Deer on this street for 30 + years! Love, Mary
