Are There Such Things As Mara Cults?
Cults that are pro Mara, & anti-buddhist, just like there are satanic cults which are anti-christian?
Who said that I wanted to start one? I was asking if they exist, not that I wanted to join.

Mara is the absence of true knowledge of who we really are, together with its result: a doomed clinging, at any cost, to a cobbled together and makeshift image of ourselves, a chameleon charlatan self that keeps changing and has to, to keep alive the fiction of its existence. So any activity arising through clinging to a self e.g. the pursuit of fame, power and immortality (on earth, heaven or hell) is a Mara Cult. Such a person would kill, steal, rape and lie in order to achieve their goals. You can probably imagine what a hideous creature this would be if taken to superhuman proportions.

Any faith which is pro-violence &, pro-sexual pleasure is a mara-cult.

If you can dream it you can do it. Good luck starting your cult.
