First week: Under the bodhi tree - During the first week after Enlightenment, the Buddha sat under the bodhi tree, experiencing the happiness of freedom and peace. Second week: Gazing at the bo tree - In gratitude to the tree that had sheltered Him during His struggle for Buddhahood, the Buddha stood without moving His eyes as He meditated on the bodhi tree Animisalochana Pooja , thus teaching a great moral lesson to the world.

Buddhists who follow this example pay their respects not only to the original bo tree, but also other bo trees. To clear their doubts, He created, by His psychic powers, a golden bridge in the air, and walked up and down it for a whole week. His mind and body were so purified that rays of six colours came out of His body - blue, yellow, red, white, orange and a mixture of these five. Each colour represented one noble quality of the Buddha: yellow for holiness, white for purity, blue for confidence, red for wisdom and orange for defeat of desire.

The mixed colour represented all these noble qualities. Today these six colours make up the Buddhist flag. Three charming girls called Tanha, Rati and Raga the daughters of Mara came to disturb His meditation. They danced around the Buddha and tried to distract Him, but soon got tired and left Him alone. Sixth week: Under the muchalinda tree - The Buddha started meditating under a muchalinda tree. After seven days, the rain stopped and the snake changed into a young man who paid his respects to the Buddha.

Two merchants, Tapassu and Bhalluka, came into His presence and offered the Buddha rice cakes and honey. The Buddha told them some of what He had found in His Enlightenment. These two merchants, by taking refuge in the Buddha and His Dhamma, became the first lay followers in the Buddhist world.

There was no Sangha order of monks and nuns then. They asked the Buddha for something sacred and the Buddha wiped His head with His right hand and pulled out some hair to give them. These hair relics Kesa Datu were brought home and enshrined by the merchants.
