Hinduism portal shifted[edit]

There must be dozen of different indian origin religion which use dharma. There is no point and no space to put all of it in intro. Each portal should be placed where each secton of respective religion are. Plus, previous placement was bit biased toward Hinduism. FWBOarticle

Sorry, still bais towards hindus[edit]

This page is still bais towards hindu concepts of Dharma


Image infobox, kama as dharma[edit]

I have added back the infobox, with citations, but taken out kama as dharma. However, this is not necessary. Several scholars, in peer reviewed journal articles have explained kama and artha are a form of dharma, in some of the ancient Sanskrit literature on dharma. See, for example: Austin Creel (1975), The Reexamination of Dharma in Hindu Ethics, Philosophy East and West, 25(2), pp 161-173; Quote: In the scheme of trivarga (artha, kama, dharma), dharma sometimes refers to one temporal value alongside others (such as are represented by artha and kama) and at other times dharma refers to the totality of social or temporal values (including artha, kama, and dharma in the first sense) in contrast to moksa, the fourth and supreme value or final end of man. As J. A. B. van Buitenen has pointed out, artha, kama, and dharma should not be deemed to refer to distinctly different practices - "In principle, all three are dharma."

Dharma is not Dhamma[edit]

Sorry there is a mistake here. The Pali text does not support the idea of Dharma as written in Sanskrit the ideas are very different. Dhamma is Sidarta Guttam correction of the Vadas, and therefore written in Pali with no equivalence in Sanskrit. NO EQUIVALENCE IN SANSKRIT!

Dhamma should not redirect to Dharmma as they are two different languages with two different ideas. Very subtle differences but with very different goals in mind, Dharmma is about maintaining the status quo, the idea of a cast system. Whereas, the idea of Dhamma, in the Pali text, is to throw the idea of a cast system out the window, and hence why Hinduism begins to expunge Dhamma (Buddhism) from India, rewrite the text in Sanskrit to ensure that the ideas of Buddhism adhere to the Vadas.

Moving on, to have different ideas, that come from different languages, which have different pronunciation, and suddenly mean the same thing, is not good academic research, not good scholarship. Cleaning up web pages should not be used as a reason to change history, rewrite the facts, and miss inform the uninformed.

This conflating of the two ideas of Dhamma and Dharma also affects historical accounts of ideas, meaning of words, the issue of linguistic drift, social and political reference.


Pali explanations of the Tripitaka needs to have their own pages to accurately explain their ideas of

Kamma Nibbana Dhamma

(And many other ideas)

As they are vastly different from the Vadas, do not share the same ideas of Jainism, not written in Sanskrit, a completely different language that predates the appearance of Sanskrit by some 600 years. A language that is often found to be the root of Sanskrit words much like Greek or Latin is to English today.

So please do not confuse the Pali Tripitaka with other texts written in Sanskrit, they are not equivalent. Karma is not equal to Kamma, Narvanna is not equal to Nibbana, Dharma is not equivalent to Dhamma, the ideas are not the same, so please leave the Pali text alone and their explanations. Do not have PALI words redirect to Sanskrit words or meanings.
