Might we put इतिहास in parenthesis or write 'itihāsa'? Khirad 07:36, 26 September 2005 (UTC)

Put इतिहास, writing in Sanskrit and in Devanagari is better than Romanised letter! DaGizza 07:54, 26 September 2005 (UTC)


Not sure about the sentence: "The occasional use of the term to refer to hindu scriptures such as the Bhagavad Gita, is entirely inappropriate." How can the Bhagavad Gita be denied categorization as itihasa when the Mahabharata, of which it is a part, is clearly categorized as such?

I dunno.... i don't find any difference between the two. Remember these were transmitted before the inventing of the script.

As for not classifying it as itihaasa, it means that it can be classified as a smriti as well

This is part of Hinduism , therefore its classification as part of Jainism is inappropriate, as is referred in the table on right.

Itihasa-Purana?[edit]

In Khandogya-Upanishad 7.1.4 (SBE vol. 1, p.110) is mentioned an "Itihasa-Upanishad". Shouldn't this be mentioned in the article (and is known, which Purana is meant, the Harivamsa or the Bhagavata)?--217.13.71.164 (talk) 12:43, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
