In Buddhism, the elephant is seen as an earthly manifestation of the qualities embodied in the Buddha himself.
When the Buddha's mother became pregnant, she dreamt of a pure, white elephant offering a white lotus from his trunk, circling around her three times and entering her womb with his tusk. She knew immediately upon waking that she had experienced a divine omen. This prophecy helped solidify the symbolism of elephants in Buddhism.
