This card opens into a Bo Leaf from the sacred Bodhi tree under which legend has it the Buddha attained enlightenment. In addition it also happens to be a flapping bird hence the name “Buddha Bird.” If I were a Guru I’d say the signifance is that the bird is the vehicle for which enlightenment is to be spread across humanity, but since I’m not, it’s just a cool pop-up card. I especially like the action mechanism and the sound it produces.
