While researching for my sophomore project, I discovered that there is a Hindu/Buddhist personification of evil - Mara. And you thought that name was innocent. >:^)
According to one book, "Mara," means "death or thirst" or something of that ilk as well as the relatively harmless "bitter". I'm not sure how much I trust the source - has anyone else heard of this meaning?
