The Asian elephant (gaja, hatthi or nàga) is a large land animal with thick grey skin, large ears and an elongated, prehensile nose called a trunk. It would be wrong to say that the elephant is `sacred' in Buddhism in the sense that the creature is believed to have any special spiritual or holy significance.

Buddhism is a religion to millions of people around the world. It predominantly means a path of practice and a way to spiritual progression. Its meaning sometimes goes beyond religion and is by and large considered to be a philosophy or a way of life. Its elementary purpose is to understand the meaning of life and develop wisdom.

Elephants are said to be one of the most selfless animals since they seem to always go out of their way to help others.  In the 1970s, over 600,000 elephants were poached and killed for their ivory and that number has been increasing every year since.

Buddhism is unusually science friendly , better Philosophy than religion. One of the Buddha’s most-loved stories (he had a lot of them), concerned a event in which a number of blind men investigated an elephant.
