Nonconsensual move and its reversion[edit]

This article is 5 years old, but after several tampered with it by moving the contents to two different related articles and back again it was found in Dakinis(in the history). ~ BF 07:35, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

This article is complete garbage. It is non-encyclopedic, unresearched, made-up rubbish and should be completely obliterated. Ekajati (yakity-yak) 15:59, 2 October 2006 (UTC)
And now it has been fixed by moving the properly researched article back here. However, the talk page could not be moved, but can be found Talk:Dakini(Buddhism). I will also archive the old talk page here for easier reference. Ekajati (yakity-yak) 20:45, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

I removed a sexual completely ridiculous statement on the page with the picture. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 144.92.47.116 (talk) 23:15, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Watch your language[edit]

The Void[edit]

Thought for the day 5th December 2009

There is in everyone a spark of Truth; no one can live without that spark. There is in everyone a flame of Love; life becomes a dark void without it. That spark, that flame is God, for He is the source of all Truth and all Love. Man seeks the Truth; he seeks to know the reality because his very nature is derived from God who is Truth. He seeks Love, to give it and share it, for his nature is God and God is Love.

Divinity is One. The names and forms may vary, but the inherent Divine Principle is One and the Same. For example, a hall may be decorated with a number of bulbs. But the electric current that flows through them is the same. Similarly, sweets may be many, but the essential ingredient in them, which is sugar, which imparts the sweetness is the same. Often times, we merely go by the names and forms, forgetting the reality.

As for external link[edit]

--88.75.196.194 (talk) 20:36, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

most of the sources referenced are not reliable or encyclopedic[edit]

Without getting into the distinctions between what is historically accurate and what is neo tantric inventions, this article is rife with sources that don't match the criteria for Wikipedia WP:RS: namely blogs and other pages that aren't part of a peer reviewed work released by a reputable and established publishers with a reputation for checking the facts, and with clear editorial oversight.

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to fix or remove the assertions that are sourced to the following:

hindupedia.com (A wiki 'in the process of applying for 501c3 status' Srilaprabhupadavaniseva.wordpress.com. stotraratna.awardspace.com/stotra/Hanuman/h13.pdf Devasthan.rajasthan.gov.in Nikhil-alchemy2.blogspot.com Crystalinks.com

These should really be deleted outright along with any facts attributed to them. Voila-pourquoi (talk) 18:04, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

a conversation concerning the sources and proposed fixes is ongoing at User_talk:Dakinijones#Dakini_articleVoila-pourquoi (talk) 21:30, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Final call for comments on Removal of unreliable or unencyclopedic sources[edit]

Please see conversation betweenVoila Pourquoi and Dakinijones at the latter's talk page and leave any comments you may have there. We have a plan for how to proceed with deleting some material and finding better references for other material. We'd love to have input from more of the community but there needs to be a cutoff point at which to decide that everyone that wants a say has had it. So if you do want to comment please follow the link in the above section, read what's been agreed so far and then see what you think. --Dakinijones (talk) 09:02, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

In Japanese Buddhism[edit]

In process of re-writing that section and at the mmoment it's not sufficiently referenced. I've taken out the unsuitable citation to wikipedia Japan (see convo on my talk page) but left in any material I'm uncertain of and am currently researching. Turning out to be a pretty complex task as the Japanese dakini is as elusive as the Tibetan one but with a totally different context. Already have a fair amount of source material but still trawling through it to ensure any statements accord with the different sources. Hope to have new citations in place within week or so but wanted to let anyone who's interested understand the state of play.--Dakinijones (talk) 18:49, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
