Summary[edit]

Description

This painting depict the god Mara, trying to disturb the Bodhisatta, just before he reached enlightenment. Mara knew Buddha was close, so he put all his efforts in trying to lure Buddha back to the world. Here is the episode when Mara drives an elephant towards Buddha. To defend Him, the Earth Mother (called the Water Mother in Thailand {Maeh Toranee}) wrung out her hair, covering the land with water and drowning the demons. However, Buddha was steadfast and regarded everything that happened within and around him as just more happenings in the world, arising and passing away according to causes and conditions, with no abiding self to be found.
