      Oh awesome! I have a lot of adoration for Shiva. ;)

      However, I feel closer to Shakti personally, especially Durga Maa, but I chant Om Namah Shivaya frequently too.

      My guide and Ishta is Shiva. But highest definition of Shiva is given in Mandukya Upanishad.

      Ahh, I get you - are you Shaiva, then? :)

      Hmmm, I thought Maha-Kala was Lord Shiva in Buddhism? Wikipedia says on Adibuddha, "Adibuddha is the "Primordial Buddha." The term refers to a self-emanating, self-originating Buddha, present before anything else existed.", which made me think it is Brahman. Since you understand Buddhism the same as me but are much more knowledgable, I thought I would ask. :)

      Atanu ji, may I ask your opinion on the "Adibuddha" of Buddhism? Do you think this is the same as Brahman in Sanatana Dharma, or do you think there are differences between their conception?

      Thank you so much for the frubal! :)

      I try to be sweet and reasonable, but I am not sure I'm that good at it. I need to work harder, I suppose.
