- The elephant head is the symbol of Gyan. Usually elephants are the path makers in forests. When an elephant passes through thick woods, a way is created for the other animals to follow. Lord Ganesh is worshiped first before starting anything new. Lord Ganesha clears the obstacles and paves the way for us to move forward in life.
- Wisdom, luck, and enthusiasm are what this lively symbol is all about.
The elephant symbolism in Buddhism is a sign of strength, honor, patience, peacefulness, and wisdom. It is believed that elephant symbols can evoke 'luminosity'- a clear state of mind pursued through meditation.
