The Buddha is laid out, in order for your viewing enjoyment.
Parable: A short moral story. (often with animal characters, mixed with truth and sometimes fiction.)
Jesus also used parables, or stories, to convey his message or teachings. A parable is a short tale that illustrates universal truth, one of the simplest of narratives. It sketches a setting, describes an action, and shows the results.
Symbolism: In Buddhism the elephant is a symbol of mental strength. At the beginning of one's practice the uncontrolled mind is symbolized by a "gray elephant" who can run wild any moment and destroy everything in his way. After practicing dharma and taming one's mind, the mind which is now brought under control is symbolized by a "white elephant", strong and powerful, who can be directed wherever one wishes and destroy all the obstacles in his way. Ven. Jampa Choskyi
