One of three images could represent this day. "Pacifying the Relatives" , "Forbidding the Sandalwood Image", and "Mastery over Passions"

"Pacifying the Relatives" (Paang Harm Samoot) is a standing image with right hand raised; this was the posture of Buddha when he persuaded disputing family members to peacefully compromise.

"Forbidding the Sandalwood Image" refers to the time when Buddha halted a sandalwood image in his likeness from rising off an altar; it is a standing image with the left hand raised.

The image representing "Mastery over Passions" is a standing image with both hands raised; this is from the parable of Buddha performing a miracle by calming the ocean.
