Buddha Elephant Story : Animals can feel Metta Vibrations

Buddha Elephant Story: Animals can feel Metta Vibrations

There is a story in Buddhist tradition about an elephant who was deeply devoted to the Buddha. The elephant, named Candavajri, lived in a forest near where the Buddha was staying and would often bring offerings of fruit and flowers to the Buddha as a gesture of respect and devotion.

One day, as the Buddha was traveling through the forest, Candavajri greeted him with a shower of flowers and a basket of fruit. The Buddha accepted the offerings with gratitude.

This story illustrates the metta vibrations animals can feel. It also serves as a reminder of the importance of cultivating positive relationships with all beings, whether they are human or animal.
