A number of the sites I’m perusing say Chinnamasta is originally a Buddhist goddess who was later over centuries incorporated into the Hindu pantheon. A number of religious scholar types asserting this in books and whatnot (They get so much stuff wrong though)
Anyway isn’t it the other way round ? Isn’t Chinnmasta originally a Hindu goddess part of the Dus MahaVidya 10 Wisdom Goddess ? As part of Shakta sect of Hinduism ? And then later became part of Buddhist system. Wouldn’t there be scriptural proof of this ?
Seems like a lot of stuff is taken and then claimed as being their own from the start when that’s not the case. But I’m not hundred percent sure. Wondering if you guys could clarify. Thx
(I’m posting too many questions but this was bothering me for long time. Thx for any info)
