A white elephant announced the birth of Gautama Buddha. 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.

  1. Waking Life:

    Allegedly, the story goes like this. Billy Wilder runs into Louis Malle, this is in the late 50’s, early 60’s. And Louis Malle had just made his most expensive film, which has cost 2 1/2 million dollars. And Billy Wilder asks him what the film is about. And Louis Malle says “Well, it’s sort of a dream within a dream.” And Billy Wilder says “You just lost 2 1/2 million dollars.”

    • Michael Powell:

      Of course, all films are surrealist. They are because they are making something that looks like real.
