Soil or debris found on a post used to tie an albino elephant.
Elephants are highly respected in Hinduism and Buddhism. Albino elephants in particular, are believed to bring luck. In ancient times, the sighting of an albino elephant would be immediately reported to the King, who would set out with his retinue to capture the elephant and make it his mount. Albino elephants were exclusively reserved for the King. And upon arriving at the area of the sighting, the person reporting it, as well as his village, would more than likely be handsomely rewarded.
It is thus believed that using the soil from the post which the albino elephant is tied to, is extremely auspicious.« Back to Glossary Index
