Earth Touch Buddha
Just before the Buddha realized enlightenment, the demon Mara attacked him with armies of monsters to frighten Buddha from his seat under the Bodhi tree. Mara claimed the seat of enlightenment for himself proclaiming that his spiritual accomplishments were far greater than the Buddha’s. Mara’s monstrous soldiers cried together “I am his witness!” Mara challenged the Buddha “Who will speak for you?” The Buddha reached out this right hand to touch the earth, and the earth itself roared “I bear you witness!” Mara vanished. And as the morning star rose in the sky, the Buddha had fully realized true enlightenment.
