Snow lions adorn the national flag of Tibet. The snow lion represents a clear mind, at peace and free of doubt. Their main quality is fearlessness, dominance over mountains, and mastery of the earth element. The vibrant energy of the snow lion symbolizes goodness and natural sense of wonder. The snow lion is one of the protectors of the Buddha and guards his throne. Their roar embodies the sound of emptiness: freedom from karma and worldly worries.
