Buddhism and Zoroastrianism ?????????????

Saraswati has nothing in common with Hariti ! what is the source of this ?? Also Buddhism and Zoroastrianism . Are the author/authors not aware Hinduism has little in common with Zoroastrianism

The religion of Indus Valley was Vedic which is at best proto Hinduism . But Saraswati is a predominant hindu Deity. Zoroastrianism is a Vedic religion but has nothing in common with Hinduism . The essence is same but deities are different .

Buddhism is Hindu philosophy copy-pasted minus the Gods with Budha . I really dont know how authored linked Buddhism to Zoroastrianism.

Zoroastrianism/Hinduism are offshoots of Proto-Vedic Religion but Budhism is a direct descendant of Hinduism .

The Original Script of Buddhism is Parakrit and Ardhmaghadi Not Sanskrit . Later Scholars translated it to Sanskrit .

Requested Move[edit]

  • KishimojinHaritiRationale: In general, articles about Buddhist deities are given Sanskrit titles as representing the most universally recognized names - in this case "Hariti". The Kishimojin title suggests a purely Japanese deity, although the article is about a deity worshipped all across Asia under different names. The article cannot be moved to Hariti because it has already been moved from Hariti. … Please share your opinion at Talk:Kishimojin RandomCritic 17:13, 13 May 2006 (UTC)


Add *Support or *Oppose followed by an optional one-sentence explanation, then sign your opinion with ~~~~
  • Oppose. I suggest creating a separate article for Hariti, and keeping this one to focus on the purely Japanese side of the mythos. ···日本穣? · Talk to Nihonjoe 03:10, 17 May 2006 (UTC) Support. After further consideration, I think it woul dbe best to move the article. ···日本穣? · Talk to Nihonjoe 22:44, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
Moved. —Nightstallion (?) 08:32, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

What a mess[edit]

This article is the bastard offspring of Hārītī and Kishimojin.
It began life as a Japanese article, got renamed to Sanskrit, and now has a hodgepodge of terminology from both traditions.
Interestingly, the last family funeral I attended was conducted in Japanese and Sanskrit.
Someone should disentangle this article, clarifying what is universal, and is specific to either tradition.

_This article has a very biased theory, and the identification of Hariti with Saraswati has no valid reason. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:16, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Sankrit is a classical language mainly used for religion/literature text. Budha never taught/preached in Sanskrit. Buddhist texts were later translated to Sanskrit. Budha spoke in Armaghadi/Parakrit.

The Sankrit influence arrives much later, with Buddhism turning into an organized religion.

Prakrit english bastardization of "Parakrit"

From Greco-Buddhism[edit]

In Greco-Buddhism page is said that "the mother deity Hariti [was] inspired by Tyche".
