I was quite intrigued to find this old school Therevadin Buddhism being practiced in India.
The Chakmas also worship Hindu deities. Lakshmi, for example, is worshipped as the Goddess of the Harvest. Chakmas offer the sacrifice of goats, chickens, or ducks to calm the spirits that are believed to bring fevers and disease. Even though animal sacrifice is totally against Buddhist beliefs, the Chakma Buddhist priests ignore the practice.
I am constantly amazed how diverse Buddhism can be ... how it evolves and changes. Do you celebrate/welcome this diversity?
