Baby Elephant needs Mom's help

This is just a short video (by Susan Nel) of how a newborn baby Elephant needs her Mom's guidance in the African bush. One can clearly see how the Elephant cow breaks of branches for the calf and stop her with her leg to continue that route. The calf understands this and follows her mom on the easy alternative route up the embankment. The 'sister' Elephant also tried to help. Video taken at Kambaku Game Lodge in the Timbavati Game Reserve which forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa.

In video owner Susan Nel's own words – "Newborn elephant which still has the umbilical cord attached, tries to climb up an embankment. Even with Moms help it proves to be just a little too high for its wobbly legs to manage. Another plan has to be made."

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
