Colleagues, I have compiled a list of the many fruitful suggestions that have been suggested to me with respect to the development of the persona of Mara and especially the connections between Yama and Mara. I have combined the suggestions given in this current thread with suggestions offered on an earlier thread related to Mara from last year. Many thanks to everyone who contributed.

Prasannapada, CANDRAKIRTI has a long quotation from an interesting sutra in which Manjusri subjugates Mara. He gives the title as Mara-damana-sutra, which turns out to be an alternate title of the Arya-Manjusri-vikurvana-parivarta-nama-mahayana-sutra.

For Mara in Prajnaparamita texts a convenient point of departure is Edward CONZE's Large Sutra on Perfect Wisdom. It is from page 326 in the Motilal Banarsidass (1990) edition (=P308-328). The English translation includes corresponding sections in other sutras and commentaries. Mara's role as ruler of the realm of desire does not seem to be particularly important.
