Satan and Māra: Christian and Buddhist Symbols of Evil. By James W. Boyd. Leiden: E. Brill, Studies in the History of Religions (Supplements to Numen) XXVII, pp. Devil's Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three is a true crime book by Mara Leveritt, about the murders of three eight-year-old children and the subsequent trials of three teenagers charged with and convicted of the crimes.

Mara has no equivalent in Satan. The evolution of the idea of Satan is interesting. As I recall, Shaitan, which becomes “Satan,” is actually the name of the Persian secret police as he (or they) is depicted in the Book of Job.

In his capacity as Varsavarti, Mara personifies the fulfilment of desire or the triple thirst, 3viz., the thirst for existence, the thirst for pleasure, the thirst for power.

He is the king of the Heaven of sensual delight. There is a deep truth in this conception of Mara as Varsavarti. the references to satan I have seen in the bible suggest that he tempts important people - Job, Zechariah, David, Jesus, much like mara himself, and sends minor servants to possess people with uncleanness, or sends major servants to lead people into false religions as a whole to understand that satan wants every single person to sin as much.
