“I asked Sarote what enabled him to heal a troubled elephant like Noon Nying. He said, ‘Jai dee,’ and placed a hand on his chest. Literally translated, this means ‘good heart’. But it means more than that, too. It signifies good intentions, wholeheartedness, and something else more mysterious that I was never quite able to pin down. ‘If you have ‘jai dee,’ he said, ‘the animals will know it, and they will have jai dee too.'”
