Throughout many cultures the Elephant is a symbol of strength, steady breathing, honor, stability & patience.
In Buddhism the Elephant is revered for these qualities, and is often depicted with/as the Buddha as he achieves Enlightenment.
In Hinduism, the elephant is found in the form of Ganesha who is the god of luck, fortune, protection and is a blessing upon all new projects.
But we love this Elephant necklace because it reminds us to be humble, patient, and determined in both meditation and in life.
At Backpack Buddha, we love Elephants. For every pendant you purchase for yourself or a friend, we'll donate 10% to Save The Elephants, one of the leading NGO's helping to stop poaching, ivory trade, and raise awareness of the Elephants around the world.
