It seems many Suttas mentioned about the Mara , which category referred as Mara ?
Devas Wielding Power over the Creation of Others (paranimmita-vasavatti deva)>
These devas enjoy sense pleasures created by others for them. Mara, the personification of delusion and desire, lives here.>
Mara is not such a bad chap after all.
lol what? why do you say that?
He is the top of my class.
The valedictorian of samsara!
Various definitions are available here
Ha ha , So, each of us also Mara . We enjoy the creation of others (iPhone 8) and this forum (created by bhante Sujato etc) !
It is a long story.
I hope Bhante @sujato will chip in here.
Not sure what I’m supposed to be chipping in on …
What do you think about the statement that the SC is the creation of Mara?
I hope I have not misunderstood something here.
Interesting that nobody yet considered consulting the dictionaries on SuttaCentral
The following link gives my favorite description of Mara.
Letter from Mara.
Hi Mara and associates,
(Ps . just being humorous)
we are equipped with the ten fold army similar to the Mara , don’t we ?!
<< the first consists of the Lusts; the second is Aversion; the third Hunger and Thirst; the fourth Craving; the fifth Sloth and Indolence; the sixth Cowardice; the seventh Doubt; the eighth Hypocrisy and Stupidity; Gains, Fame, Honour and Glory falsely obtained form the ninth; and the tenth is the Lauding of oneself and the Contemning of others. >>
Ps. Apologies if above humor is not a right speech !
