According to several ancient scriptures, there are a lot of ways to attract prosperity into your lives. Some Shastras even mention certain remedies with the help of which one can boost their financial stance and get rid of any obstacle coming their way to success.
The elephant is considered a holy animal in the Hindu religion as it is associated with Lord Ganesha, who is revered as the remover of the obstacle. Hindu devotees worship him with the belief that he would discard all the struggles of their life and would bless them with joy, prosperity, and health.
Vastu Shastra explains that feeding or keeping an elephant is highly auspicious in Hinduism, but it’s practically not possible for everyone to domesticate and provide for such a giant animal every day. Therefore, one can bring home an elephant sculpture made up of silver.
Silver holds a great significance in Hinduism, especially in the eyes of Vastu Vidya. And, the elephant has its own auspicious connection, for that reason bringing home a silver sculpture of an elephant doubles the fortune of the household.
According to Vastu Shastra, keeping a silver elephant sculpture in the house or at the workplace eliminates the presence of any Vastu defect.
Once these Vastu doshas are eliminated, the house or the office gets the divine blessings of Goddess Laxmi.
As per Vastu and Feng Shui, the symbol of the elephant brings energies of beauty, silent power, kindness, and majesty. Though elephants are the largest and one of the strongest land animals living on our planet today while their energy feels invariably kind and wise. An elephant symbol is easy to use and can offer many different benefits throughout the home, office or business. A pair of elephants energize certain living spaces for good luck.
Protection, good luck, wisdom, and fertility are believed to be the main energies brought by the symbol of the elephant into any living space, be it home or office/business. The direction of an elephant’s trunk has a complex symbol of its own, and this is the detail one should always pay attention when choosing the elephant symbol as a suggested cure along with its colors and material used.
An elephant’s trunk is equally very sensitive and very strong and is used for a variety of purposes, from drinking to picking up food to greeting friends or warding off enemies. In most of our suggested applications, the elephants are usually depicted with the trunk up, symbolizing the showering of good luck and blessings.

Nine ways the elephant energy can be used in a Home/Office:
- Bringing Good Luck into the Home: Elephants are considered a symbol of good luck for many reasons, most of them tracing their origin to many ancient folklores, place a statue of an elephant, or a pair of elephants, at the front door facing inward to signal good luck and blessings entering the home. The elephants should have their trunks facing upwards which allows the lucky energy to be dispersed throughout your home or office and also to represent prosperity, good luck, and success.
2. Protection: Because of its strength and physical power, the elephant also represents protection and stability. You might have often seen a pair of elephants at the entrance of many Asian buildings, such as temples and businesses. Elephants impart a sense of respect and humility, and this does not take away from their strength or power.
To make use of elephants’ protective powers, you can place a couple of elephants at your home’s main entrance or even an elephant pair on a side table can work very well. If you have children, it is wonderful to make use of the protective powers of the elephant energy in their room decor. It can be done in a variety of ways; from elephant art prints or wallpapers to toys or figurines. Place an elephant or pair of elephants facing outward to protect the home to prevent the loss of ‘Prana’ energy from the home.
3. Promote Love and Fidelity: A pair of elephants is commonly used in the bedroom or in the Love & Marriage area to activate a strong love relationship and faithfulness between couples. You should understand the mating pattern of the animal and decide whether you want to replicate this in your life and your love relationship. Placing them in the South-West corner of the bedroom enhances the love relationship.
4. Bonding between Mother and Child: Elephant images and figurines depicting a mother elephant and her baby symbolize the strong bond between and mother and child. This is a nurturing symbol to be placed in your home’s family area. You might also place this maternal symbol in the parents’ or child’s bedroom to strengthen their bond.
5. Fertility: One of the most popular uses of the elephant is a fertility cure. When used for this specific purpose, choose an elephant with the trunk down. There are several explanations as to why the trunk down is beneficial for this specific application. One of them is that an elephant with its trunk down can store and accumulate energy. Another is that an elephant with its trunk down is prepared to push through various obstacles, so it makes sense that this symbol would be used for a couple seeking a fertility cure. You may place an elephant statue besides the bed or place a pair, one on either side of the bedroom door, to welcome in ‘infant’ energy.
6. Knowledge, Wisdom, and Academic Success: The elephant is considered one of the sacred animals in Buddhism and is often depicted in Indian mythology. This symbol can be used in your child’s study or your home office, as well as in the living room, to activate the energy of study and curiosity. Most of all, elephants emit energy of kindness and strength, and there is no home that cannot benefit from this beautiful energy. You may also place a statue in your child’s bedroom, on his or her desk, or wherever he/she does homework.
7. Energize the Career Area: Place an elephant at or near the door of your office to promote power, wisdom, and success in your work life. If you have a small home office or workspace, you can also place an elephant near the door or entrance to space.
8. Work Success: Place an elephant near the front door or the door of the office to attract power and to protect the person from bad energy in the office.
