Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 3 - Chapter 1 - Verse 35


यो गजेन्द्र झषग्रस्तं ध्यायन्तंचरणाम्बुजम् । क्रोशन्तीनां करेणूनां कृच्छ्रतोऽमोचयद् द्रुतम् ॥ ३५ ॥


yo gajendraṁ jhaṣa-grastaṁdhyāyantaṁ caraṇāmbujamkrośantīnāṁ kareṇūnāṁkṛcchrato ’mocayad drutam


The Personality of Godhead delivered the king of the elephants, who was attacked by an alligator and who meditated upon the lotus feet of the Lord. At that time the female elephants who accompanied him were crying, and the Lord saved them from the impending danger.


The example of the elephant in danger who was saved by the Supreme Lord is especially cited here because even if one is an animal he can approach the Personality of Godhead in devotional service, whereas even a demigod cannot approach the Supreme Person unless he is a devotee.
