Elephants to bring in luck

Unread post by Mysticserver » Tue Jan 04, 2011 6:13 pm

Lucky elephants need to have their trunks up. Should their trunks be pointing toward the door (to call in luck) or away from the door (so luck walks in with them)? I've heard both and would be interested to hear what people believe.

I have heard of the trunks up idea, but it is by no means consistent. Sri Ganesh, the Hindu Elephant God, who among other things does bring in luck, is featured in a variety of poses, usually with his trunk down. With that said, this is pretty off topic for our board so let's stick to Hoodoo, Lucky Mojo, and if you have specific question about amulets, charms, seals, papers, and jewelry we will be happy to assist!

Lucky Mojo has a web page discussing lucky elephants

The lucky elephant charm is a deliberate bit of cultural exoticism found in America and Europe. Historically linked to to the era …

So I didn't think it would be off topic ... Sorry

Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, is often pictured with elephants, usually with the trunk up. Lucky Mojo carries Lakshmi and Ganesh candles, oils, incense, sachet powders, and bath crystals, so I would say this topic is OK for this forum.

I was told by a Hindu to keep a statue of Ganesha facing the front door to draw in luck. That was specific to that tradition, so I don't know about lucky elephants in general. For me it is an extension of my ongoing devotional relationship with Sri Ganesha, and I have found it to be effective.

I was taught that you place the elephants facing to the inside of the house. So luck and wealth follows them in.
