Summary[edit]

Description

Nalagiri was an elephant with a bad character. Devadatta, a nephew of the Buddha who was jealous of Buddha and wanted to kill him, made Nalagirl purposefully very angry and set him loose in the street in which Buddha was walking with many other monks. As Nalagiri, running wildly and trumpeting, came closer to the Buddha, the Buddha mentally directed his loving kindness and friendliness (metta) to Nalagiri, because of which Nalagiri calmed down, and subsequently bowed low before the Buddha as a way of showing respect.
