      Yes, to a greater extent in the soul search. Yet there is a world of
      difference (for that matter, in any Astika school) in areas related
      to mukti.

      Love,

          Like you say, the communication of ideas among Indian religions
          have never been water-tight.

          In Tevaram, the foremost among Tamil saiva works,
          Shiva is called Vardhamaanar.

          In Saiva aagamas, there is influence from Jaina tradition.
          Long ago, I got John E. Cort (ed.,) Open boundaries : Jain communities and
          cultures in Indian history. State University of New York Press, c1998.
          There is some description in the paper by Richard Davis (Yale, author of
          a book on Saiva aagamas, "Ritual in the oscillating universe").
          Pl. read it when you've time (thru' interlibrary loan, ...).

          In Buddhism, Buddha, the teacher, was represented for some centuries
          just by his feet, or an empty chair under the bodhi tree. In
          anthropomorphic
          form, Buddha comes centuries later. There has been suggestions that
          Buddha image develops from Greek art traditions. Have to check books:
          Apollo(?) & early Buddha.

          Have you seen I. Mahadevan, Early Tamil epigraphy, 2003 (the first
          book about Tamil in the 100+ years old Harvard Oriental series)?
          Quite a lot of new material about Jainism in early Tamil Nadu & Kerala.
