 History of the Bhumisparsha Mudra

Before the Buddha achieved enlightenment he was attacked by the demon Mara along with monsters. The attackers hoped to frighten Siddhartha Guatama (Buddha) from his place under the Bodhi tree. Buddha remained unmoved. Mara claimed his spiritual successes to be greater than Buddha’s and took his place under the tree. “I am his witness” cried Mara’s monsters. “Who will speak for you?” said Mara to Siddhartha, reaching his right hand down to touch the earth.  The earth roared “I bear you witness.” Mara disappeared. It was then Siddhartha Guatama realised enlightenment.
