Nalagiri

Searching this morning for inspiration I found this beautiful image of Lord Buddha befriending the raging elephant Nalagiri with the strength of his mettā. Over the years my appreciation of Lord Buddha only grows. What a beautiful being and how fortunate we are to have known him through his teachings.

The Buddha reached forward with his right hand and laid it on the elephant’s brow. “Ambho, Nalagiri,” he said. “You are safe now, my friend.”
