Problems with deity attributions
In the first paragraph, although the attribution that Bajrayogini is indeed a deity of the Newar (Buddhist/Hindu) tradition of the Kathmandu Valley, the rest of the attributions are incorrect. Ugratara, specifically, is a Hindu Shakti deity - one of the ten MahaVidyas, or forms of the Goddess Durga/Kali. As a Buddhist deity she is Ekajati, or one of the 21 Taras - Mahachinakrama Tara. More generally, Vajrayogini is also a Buddhist deity and her sacred sites of also of Buddhist association. This site of Shankhu Bajrayogini is indeed sacred to both Hindu and Buddhist, but the specific associations cited in this article are not correct. EndendrosGardens (talk) 06:03, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
I have blanked from the article content that was plagiarized from OoCities.org. I do not know whether the source can be considered reliable and, thus, whether the information it provides can be used to expand the article; however, any such expansion should properly attribute the source, avoid word-for-word duplication, and incorporate other sources.
The text was copied from OoCites, with spelling errors, on 27 October 2007. It is the presence of the spelling errors in both OoCites and the copied text that confirms that the text was copied to Wikipedia from OoCites rather than vice versa. One of the spelling errors was immediately corrected on Wikipedia, but still persists in OoCites, indicating that the latter is the older, original source. -- Black Falcon (talk) 16:29, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
