The Precious Elephant is one of the 7 Precious possessions of Chakravartin.

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. Elephant tusks are sometimes depicted and are symbolic of the whole elephant.
