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 .
- Kishimojin → Hariti … Rationale: 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)

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)
What a mess
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.

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