« When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick: every time a stick is thrown, you run after it. Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower. One only throws a stick at a lion once. »
— Milarepa (1052–1135)

The "snow lion" is a common motive in Tibetan tankha, and is on the Tibetan flag (as a representation of "a unified spiritual and secular life").
