What was the original nonsense?[edit]

The few lines stuff that this page had originally, was utter rubbish. It gave wrong dictionary definition of Ishvara, talked of only Vaisheshika philosophy, a rather shady one. Also the guy gave his own views about "equating Ishvara with Saguna Brahman".

I have now expanded the article, writing about Ishvara concept in all Hindu philosophies without rubbing off the original guy's.

I also strongly suggest that this article should be merged with "Ishwara", which redirects automaticaly to Saguna Brahman, which I have also edited, because the difference is only of transliteration. Cygnus_hansa 20:04, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Do you want to merge this article with Saguna Brahman? If not, then we should move this article to Ishwara, and make Ishvara a redirect to Ishwara. — goethean 21:19, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

No, I think Saguna Brahman should remain a separate page and delinked with Ishwara. What you say is desirable.Cygnus_hansa 14:01, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Done[edit]

I have already done the required moving.Cygnus_hansa 15:07, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Ishwara currently redirects to Saguna Brahman. Shouldn't it redirect to Ishvara? — goethean 15:54, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

Both the terms refer to the same thing.--BabubTalk 16:06, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

If there is a merge then I would vote that the main article heading remains as Ishvara, as this is far more well known (87,000 Google hits vs 34,000 for example). Regards, GourangaUK 11:54, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

īśāna[edit]

What is the "is/ish-" morpheme relation in the name "īśāna" if any? 70.59.140.179 (talk) 06:19, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Ongoing discussion on moving the term Avatar to primary topic[edit]

There is an ongoing discussion [here] on moving the term Avatar from the popular film back to its original place as a primary topic. Hoverfish Talk 15:07, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
