Importance of Mahavaratas?[edit]

I believe that this and other articles dealing with the five Mahavratas of Jainism should be high importance because they are the fundamental tenets of the religion. I'll change their importances to high for WikiProject Jainism, and if any objects, he/she can change them back. --Qmwne235 20:01, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Gross inaccuracy in translating 'sate hitam satyam' and other deviations[edit]

This article constantly implies that for Hindus, Buddhists and Jains, Satya or the truth is equated with God. This is fundamentally inaccurate and clearly a case of personal interpretation by the author. The Buddha never commented on God, let alone equate the concept of the Ultimate Truth being the same as Almighty God. There are many different interpretations as to what constitutes the Ultimate Truth, and only some of them suggest that the Ultimate Truth is the same as God. Sadly, I cannot cite any sources for this information. However, even in terms of simple linguistic translation, Satya does _not_ translate to 'God'. —Preceding unsigned comment added by DarkseidX (talkcontribs) 19:00, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
