Dantika and the Elephant

Coming out from my day’s abiding on Vulture Peak Mountain,

I saw on the bank of a river an elephant emerged from its plunge.

A man holding a hook requested: “Give me your foot.”

The elephant extended its foot. The man got up on the elephant.

Seeing what was untrained now tamed brought under human control, with that I centered my mind — why I’d gone to the woods in the first place.
