Dhamma Info (7)

Practise like the Royal Elephant

The Royal Elephant has four qualities:
1.Faithfully obedient to the words of the mahout.
2.Kill the enemies on the battle ground without hesitation.
3.Forbear the beatings and wounds received at the battle ground.
4.The elephant goes quickly only to places as directed by its mahout.
If practice is like that of a royal elephant, one shall gain the noble dhamma in Sasana.
1.Listen obediently and with no deviation to the Buddha's admonition.
2.Rightly able to attack the Kilesa enemy.
3.Must have the forbearance of unpleasant words and Vedana.
4.Must have the ability to get to Nibbana swiftly.
