The trumpeting of the elephants is a sound of rejoicing that
erupts with the appearance of their king, their master. The elephants
call other animals and birds to celebrate, with the occasion being
life itself! Voices of the creatures obedient to the challenge blend
into the polyphonic oratorio of joy and exultation that swells until
it resonates throughout the heavens. It is fitting that elephants
should lead this symphony. When the world was young, the elephant had
strength and power over all. He also embodied wisdom, longevity,
loyalty, tolerance, and compassion. Sound is the path into the cosmos,
where the individual timbres and voices are as important as the entire
universal orchestra. In Greek tradition, a lyre made from antelope
horns was the instrument of Apollo, the god of prophecy and music.
Playing it, Orpheus tamed wild animals, and charmed trees and
mountains. According to Hindu doctrine, when Krishna played the flute,
the cosmos started to move and creation of the world began.
