Intriguing White Elephant Legends
In Buddhist legend, Buddha’s mother dreamt that a white elephant entered her womb during her pregnancy. The royal sages interpreted this to mean that her child was destined for greatness as a universal monarch or buddha. This is why the white elephant is considered highly auspicious. It signifies authority, compassion, truth and kindness.
White elephants are also considered sacred in Thailand and Burma, and are a symbol of good luck and royalty. The ancient kings of Siam used to ride into battle on elephants; the more a king had, the more status and power he enjoyed. In fact, when King Rama IV found out that American President Abraham Lincoln had no elephants, he offered to send him some to assist in the Civil War. However, the President politely declined the offer.
The elephant has long been revered as a creature imbued with positive attributes. Carry its incredible power with you whenever you wear the Elephant Talisman Silver Plated Bangle.
