What goddess is this? I thought it looked like Kali because of the demon heads around her waist and her tongue hanging out/gleeful facial expression

Happy Buddha’s Return from Heaven Day
On this day we celebrate Buddha’s return from the desire god realm called Land of the Thirty-three Heavens, where he had been to visit his mother who had been reborn there.
Traditionally this day also marks the end of the summer retreat. Every year, during the summer months, Buddha did a three-month retreat with his disciples. His reason for doing this was to avoid harming insects and other animals.
