Chandi as Parvati wife of Siva[edit]

Someone has been repeatedly changing the first paragraph to say that Candi is an aspect of Parvati and is the consort of Siva. Candi is envisaged as the Supreme Reality and the conglomeration of the powers of all Gods including Siva in Devi Mahatmya. Frustrating.--Sankarrukku (talk) 11:52, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Chandi is considered as Supreme reality in Devi Mahatmya. Elsewhere, Chandi is considered as an epithet of Durga or Kali or Parvati. This second opinion should also be included. The article is written only through the Devi Mahatmya prospective at the moment. --Redtigerxyz (talk) 04:44, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Move page to Chandi[edit]

IMO, the article's name should Chandi (the usual spelling in English), and not the IAST Caṇḍī like the FA Ganesha is named so and not Ganeśa.--Redtigerxyz (talk) 17:12, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

The article was named Caṇḍī because the name Chandi was redirecting to Durga. I had made a request in the Hinduism-related topics notice board.

I would like to created a page on Caṇḍī or Chandi, the name of the Goddess who is the ultimate reality in Devi Mahatmyam. There is no page with the name Caṇḍī. However Chandi which is the common usage for this deity redirects to Durga. This needs to be undone.

I would welcome suggestions as to how I can go about it.

Article on Caṇḍī created.--Sankarrukku 02:24, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Does anyone read the notice board?

It may be noted that Chandi and Chandika redirects to Caṇḍī, at the moment. I had redirected those links to Caṇḍī page as soon as the page was formed.--Redtigerxyz (talk) 04:41, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
