Elephant Mandala Art

Beautiful Elephant Mandala Drawing

The Elephant is the symbol of power, integrity, peace, harmony and intelligence. They are considered as an emblem of good luck, fertility, wisdom and protection.

In Hinduism, elephants are considered a sacred animal as they are seen as a living incarnation of Lord Ganesha, who is regarded as the “Remover of Obstacles”. In Buddhism, the elephant represents mental strength.

At the beginning of one’s path towards spiritual awakening and enlightenment, the uncontrolled mind is represented by gray elephant and the controlled mind is represented by white elephant. White elephants are believed to be a symbol of calm and composed mind.

Elephants are seen as the “GOD OF JUNGLES”, they are an integral part of forest and savanna ecosystem. They are important ecosystem architects, as they make pathways in dense forested habitat that allow passage for other animals.

This beautiful and majestic creature doesn’t shy away from helping those in needs, reminding us to be kind-hearted.
