Wisdom Master Maticintin, special Teaching with Leo, the deer, and Dorje, the Pomeranian
One day some few years back, while the Wisdom Master was Teaching outside in front of the Stupa, someone rushed over to her to say that there was a young buck pawing at the front gate with its hooves.
“Let him in,” she called out. When the gate was opened, the deer rushed across the lengthy green lawn to where she sat and then laid down at her feet. His name was Leo, a name given him for his gentle courage.
The Wisdom Master had rescued him from a hole in the ground, frightened and wailing, seemingly deserted by his mother, she reached down and lifted the 15 lb new born fawn in her arms and carried him inside the gate. She and other monastery residents cared for him for the first year of his life before he asked to be set free.
Leo’s appearance that day was the first he had been seen in many months after he had been returned to the wild. He and Dorje the Pomeranian were buddies and both followed the Wisdom Master around for the remainder of the day.
Before nightfall that same day, the front gate was again opened to allow Leo to return to his life as a free-wild deer.
