Tigger left me this morning. His fourth life with me has been 17 years. I expect he will return in a year or two, which seems to be how long he takes to reincarnate.
We sat every morning, and Tigger was especially fond of candle flame and Kirti Monastery incense. He did not like the ending gong. He did not hear it this morning as he left in the middle of tonglen practice.
I will miss him, but take comfort in knowing he will be back.
