Enlightenment Buddha Travel Altar
When Shakyamuni took his seat under the Bodhi Tree, resolving to ease the suffering of living beings through his Enlightenment, the forces of Mara gathered to distract him from his purpose. The "demons" are aspects of self-attachment and self-grasping. As the higher awareness of Enlightenment dawns, such attachment melts.
Rays of light by the hundreds of thousands emanate from this Buddha’s body and spread throughout the fields of the Jinas. In this instant all worries are set aside: suffering, pride and hatred no longer torment anyone forever more.
