Let $\varphi(z)=z^m, z \in \mathbb{U}$, for some positive integer $m$, and $C_\varphi$ be the composition operator on the Bergman space $\mathcal{A}^2$ induced by $\varphi$. In this article, we completely determine the point spectrum, spectrum, essential spectrum, and essential norm of the operators $C^*_\varphi C_\varphi, C_\varphi C^*_\varphi$ as well as self-commutator and anti-self-commutators of $C_\varphi$. We also find the eigenfunctions of these operators.
