Swayam Bhagavan uner Principal historic branches[edit]

Should red letter page Swayam Bhagavan listed here, be Svayam Bhagavan?

This is not an article on Vaishnavism. It is about the sectarian perception by a contemporary organization (ISKCON) of Vaishnavism. It should appropiately be referred as an article on ISKCON (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Society_for_Krishna_Consciousness) and its particular dogmas and phylosophycal positions. I am new to wikipedia so I do not know how exactly the process goes to review these articles to help improve their neutrality. Does someone review tha information? Who finally decides what stays and what goes? Saludos

Rig Veda extract[edit]

Does the quote from the Rig Veda really belong in the lead? Is this actually the generally accepted translation and interpretation? 70.75.233.253 (talk) 18:22, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Obviously do, source added. Bladesmulti (talk) 10:42, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
The IP is right: that interpretation of the Rigvedic verse may well be the ones preferred by Vaishnava devotees, but it is not the "standard" one. Vishnu is mentioned in the Rigveda but only as a minor deity. Bladesmuti, can you provide the exact quotes and context from the source you added. I couldn't access it on Google Books.
