Spiritual Animals

Trust me. I love Donkeys. I generally stop on my tracks and watch them if I happen to spot them (which rarely happens in Bangalore). I am of the belief that they are truly innocent, patient and cute. So, when I was reading a book (borrowed from a friend) called Fragrance of Life (on Life and Spirituality by a South Indian spiritual thought leader, Sri Ram) and came across a chapter that positioned Donkeys as spiritual beings because they drip with innocence and are amazingly patient, it resonated with me.

Talking of spiritual animals, don't you think the other extremely spiritual animal is perhaps the Camel? Don't Camels have a permanent smile on their faces? :-)
