The Precious Elephant is a symbol of the strength of the mind in Buddhism. Exhibiting noble gentleness, the precious elephant serves as a symbol of the calm majesty possessed by one who is on the path. Specifically, it embodies the boundless powers of the Buddha which are miraculous aspiration, effort, intention, and analysis. The image at the right says it all: a stupa - symbolic of the mind of a Buddha with a basis of strong elephants.

No,not at all like you, don't worry it's me reading it wrong, I've been missing something for years I've been told ;-}

Let us hope with your peaceful surroundings and enough meditation that what you are missing finds you! Often people move so fast through their lives they leave bits of themselves behind, without realising, meditation allows those bits to catch up with the rest of you!

ooooh words of wisdom happily accepted and understood, and as that realisation comes....the fragments slowly come together.
