"Consign them to dust and damp by way of preserving them"

Gajendra Moksha

with 8 comments

Photo by Johan Opperman, taken at Orpen Dam, Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Vishnu did not arrive in person, but the rest of the herd came and rescued the baby elephant.


Update [2012-08-31]: Found another version apparently at “the Luangwa River in the South Luangwa National Park” in Zambia, via here and here, etc. (Couldn’t get the above photo to not appear in this gallery; ignore that one.)

    • See the video Pratish linked to; it’s more than a substitute. :-)

  3. I do hope the title is not lost on the readers :D
    The copy of Gajendra Moksha that I own has very nearly the same scene as the one in the post. Only Garuda and Vishnu missing from the scene here.
