The Great Elephant Family
When my husband was to come to our home to marry me, my father wanted him to come mounted on an elephant. He wanted all the citizens of the city to realize that his son-in-law came for marriage on an elephant. This was to make people acknowledge his status in the city.
In Indian and Buddhist cultures, Elephant has been accepted as a symbol of huge strength, stature, Wisdom and courage. In Indian mythology, Elephant is considered to be the vehicle of Lord Indra - the king of heaven and lord of rain. Elephant is also associated with Goddess Lakshmi - the Goddess of Wealth.
Indian minds are thus conditioned to revere elephants. Elephant figurines are thus a great source to program your sub-conscious to develop courage, wisdom, strength to overcome obstacles and also to raise one's stature in this materialistic world.
However, care must be taken when placing the elephant figurines in your living room. Do not place an elephant which depicts an angry or hungry pose. Elephant figurines with wide open mouth, fiery eyes, and raised trunk depict anger while ones with the trunk resting backwards on it torso represent hunger.
Place the elephant in your living room where you can see it when in the house and derive strength from it. Similarly place it on your office table such that it remains in front of your eyes.
