The Defeat of Mara

This is an image of a comic book page. The text on the comic reads "The Defeat of Mara. During his long meditations, Siddhartha was tempted by the demon Mara, who wanted to prevent Siddhartha from reaching enlightenment (awakening, wisdom, or insight). Mara sent his armies, various temptations, and even bad weather to distract Siddhartha. When those tactics did not work, he challenged Siddhartha to defend his claim of enlightenment. Siddhartha touched the earth to witness his achievement."
