We encounter a multi-valanced meaning when it comes to deer in Bali. The most ancient layers go back to the Animistic roots of Bali, where deer are revered as omen givers, known to whisper the secrets about the future. But deer also carry a likely "deep memory" association with the Deer Park in Sarnath, India where the Buddha gave his first sermons.
