From the article "VajravArAhI" at the Kamakotimandali website:

BhagavatI bimbAmbikA recognizes the fact that the deity is Buddhist in origin, as does baDabAnala tantra, and both prescribe the use of trishakti-chAmuNDA during the observance of tAntrikI sandhyA during mahAnishA instead of vajravArAhI, however prescribing her mantra for purposes of Japa

So the question is - Where does the baDabanala tantra recognize vajravarahi as a Buddhist diety originally?

  • I don't understand why there are close votes. Given that you are asking for the verses of a Tantra that recognize the concerned deity as of Buddhist origin.
