The third avatara of Jaya and Vijaya is Shishupala and Dantavakra and not Kamsa. Comments?

- You are quite right - I have changed it from Kamsa to Dantavakra. Ys, Gouranga(UK) 08:49, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
- Oppose Jaya-Vijaya are different entities in Hindu mythology. Hiranyakashipu and Hiranyaksha is just one of the births of Jaya-Vijaya on the earth. There are others. See Jaya-Vijaya for details. Also, Jaya-Vijaya are traditionally portrayed as door-keepers in Vishnu temples. --Redtigerxyz Talk 05:26, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Ok. I will wait, but please answer the following questions:
- Why should Jaya-Vijaya be redirected to Hiranyakashipu, why not Hiranyaksha, Kumbhakarna, Ravana or Shishupala, who are also births of Jaya-Vijaya?
- How does "Caitanya Caritamrta" and "Door-keepers of Vishnu temples" be relevant (not be WP:UNDUE) in Hiranyakashipu?
- Mani, Vettam (1975). Puranic Encyclopaedia: A Comprehensive Dictionary With Special Reference to the Epic and Puranic Literature. Delhi: Motilal Banarsidass. ISBN 0842-60822-2. has two entries for the two articles p. 352 (Jaya-Vijaya) and p. 314 (Hiranyakashipu). Explain.
- Oppose per Redtigerxyz. If there is some text duplicated, the thing to do is fix those sections. Not merge barely-related articles and cause confusion. Shreevatsa (talk) 13:21, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
- I've gone ahead and fixed it as I saw fit — following ⌘macwhiz's comments about the "superior text" that was here, I have put that text (more or less) in the Jaya-Vijaya article. I no longer see any significant duplication between the articles, nor (as before) any reason to merge them. Shreevatsa (talk) 18:43, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
