2300 BCE   Astarte, one of the ancient forms of the Nazirutha goddess Simat Hiya (Miryai), was worshipped by the Iranians in her form as Anahita. Her image was found in Sumeria around 2300 BC. In the Tibetan pantheon she is a manifestation of the sky goddess Kaladugmo or Ma Namkha ( 'Mother Sky'). In the true Bon she is Sherab Chamma, the Heavenly Mother of Wisdom. The Prajnaparamita texts are about Her.
