An 18ct gold seal with a model of a Tibetan Shakyamuni Buddha. Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha is generally considered one of many buddhas to have come to the help of sentient beings, and is understood to be accessible in various ways. These are called the dharmakaya, samboghakaya and nirmanakya. They have been translated into English as truth-body, bliss- or enjoyment-body, and activity-body. Underneath is engraved a squirrel eating a carrot. On one crest that we researched the motto below the squirrel was “Be not unmindful of the future”. It is certainly a motto that squirrels live by. For while we humans are busy raking leaves or watching television, our furry friends are quite literally squirreling away nuts for the future.
