INDIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Hindu and Buddhist Gods of India...

MARA(2)

Indian Demon

Very annoying Demon of Anti-Buddhism

For some reason he really bears a grudge against humans. He tried every dirty trick to stop GAUTAMA spreading his message of enlightenment, including sending his own daughters to seduce him away from his mission.

However, the BUDDHA just smiled and sent him packing with a simple demon-repelling hand gesture he’d just invented.
