Prajapati lord of beasts[edit]

I think you mean Pashupati, the Harappan seals mentioned in Flood "Introduction to Hinduism" on p28-29 are of Shiva, not Prajapati Zero sharp 04:29, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

I have no doubt someone somewhere has drawn the connection, but as it is the claim should be removed as unreferenced. dab (𒁳) 11:10, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

The ten lords or eleven lords of Prajapati[edit]

This pages says ten lords then lists eleven, is this a mistake or some sort of mystical concept. Okay didnt see the Or, nothing to see here move along. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.111.151.130 (talk) 11:29, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Pashupati = Prajapati?[edit]

We currently have two articles, Pashupati and Prajapati which make no reference to each other. The former spelling is commonly used for quite an ancient deity, considered an epithet of Shiva. Prajapati is also considered (in later times at least) an aspect of Shiva or Vishnu. Are they just different spellings of the same name, or is there some more substantial difference? Should these articles be merged? Fuzzypeg 23:56, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I've just managed to find an answer to my own question. Pashupati = "Lord of Animals" and Prajapati = "Lord of the people". So they're different. Fuzzypeg 00:04, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
And now looking at the articles, I see different translations again, "Lord of cattle" and "Lord of creatures". But they're clearly different epithets, that much I can tell. Fuzzypeg 00:07, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
