One of the nine jewels that emerged from 'samudra manthan' churning of the ocean by the gods and demons was the elephant. The elephant is, therefore, considered absolutely precious to be preserved and protected like the way jewels are.
In one of her dreams, Buddha's mother dreamt of a white elephant. And then the prophet of peace Gautam Buddha was born. And then comes the greatest of all '˜vahanas' (carriages for Gods) - the '˜Airavat' (elephant ). The Airavat was the chosen carriage for the God of all Gods '˜ Indra '. There were other Gods as well riding on elephants as well, but Indra's airavat was special. It was regal in size and had ten tusks, not just the usual two. A white elephant is rare and given special significance. It is often considered sacred and symbolises royalty, and is also considered a symbol of good luck.
Wisdom is represented by the elephant in the form of the deity Ganesh, one of the most popular gods in the Hindu religion's pantheon. Ganesha is very distinctive in having a human form with the head of an elephant.
