    Take off the chains get rid of the bull hook and see what the elephant wants to do to celebrate this holiday and that is the true path. Oh and don't drug the poor animal. His eyes are glazed over.

    Where is he the king, he is king only when he is free and in the wild with his own family. Now he is prisoner of human beings and their rituals.

    A truly majestic, a truly regal animal.A chance, an oppertunity even a human being will not get to carry the sacred relics of the lord buddha!

    I think it's time to realize that the elephant / elephants needs to be free from chains, in a jungle!! Chains and hooks have no place in their lives. Not even in the name of religion!!
