This image may, sadly, be doomed. I downloaded it years ago from a south Indian museum page. I can't for the life of me find it now, and have no idea where to proceed for aquiring the appropriate license. I'd hoped that seeing as it's a fairly simple photograph of a statue on a plain background, it may pass muster, but after reading the terms and policies regarding such pictures, it seems a slim hope.AaronCarson (talk) 19:00, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

AaronCarson, two topics you must read would be WP:OR (No original research) and WP:UNDUE (NO undue importance).--Redtigerxyz (talk) 12:39, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Bhuma Devi and Prithvi[edit]

Both are Hindu Earth goddesses, both the articles have overlapping info about the goddesses for e.g. Both articles claim that Bhuma and Prithvi are wives of Vishnu. So is Bhuma same as Prithvi, if you have the info about the goddesses, plz add it. Nice work done on iconography of Prithvi. In a ref, please add name of publisher, year of publ. and ISBN of book quoting with page nos.--Redtigerxyz (talk) 12:02, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Although both are Hindu earth Goddesses, I can't see that this is sufficient reason to merge them together. There are many deities in the Hindu religion who preside over the same functions but are not necessarily considered the same God. Subhramanya and Mangal are both gods of war, but they are not considered to be the same.

Aditi is also an earth mother, as well as Bhuvaneshwari, and Sita. Prithvi is the consort of Dyaus Pitar, not Vishnu. The iconographic information I provided was for Bhumidevi, not Prithivi. Prithivi has no iconography as she is a Vedic deity, and in Vedic times images were not used for worship.[1] However if I do a section on the iconography of Prithivi, it will be quite different, but I will have to site sources and this means more time and research.

Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines[edit]

You may want to read them. --Redtigerxyz (talk) 10:07, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Sorry if i was a little rude on the Vajreshwari talk. I noticed that you created Rudrani. Good start. Some things to be do when you start a new article:

  • Add links to other wiki-articles. e.g. Rudra in Rudrani
  • Add appropriate categories e.g. [[Category:Hindu goddesses]] in Rudrani
  • On the discussion page, put appropriate banners of WikiProjects e.g. {{WikiProject Hinduism}} for Rudrani. Members of that WikiProject will assess the article. See Wikipedia:WikiProject Hinduism/Assessment for assessment by WikiProject Hinduism. --Redtigerxyz (talk) 05:33, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

It is very observant of you to catch the "Eventually"s on Talk:Jaffna Kingdom.--Redtigerxyz (talk) 05:52, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Matangi[edit]

Matanga has been mentioned as a sage. "Rishis" are u8sually Brahmins. This being the case, I dont think the entry should be present in a list of "ethnic Dalits" unless proper citations are provided. -Ravichandar 02:19, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Ceridwen[edit]

Hey, Aaron, sorry I could not get back to you, but I've been travelling. It looks like Ceridwen is already in Category:Welsh goddesses. I don't think that that's an appropriate title for the category, as nearly all figures from Welsh mythology are not portrayed as gods in surviving texts even when that's obviously their origin. I'd prefer a category like Category:Characters of Welsh mythology or something like that. As for neopagans using her, perhaps she could go in or something if she's widespread.--Cúchullain t/c 12:15, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Parvati[edit]

Hi, heard from you after a long time. There are few [citation needed] tags in the article. Can you find some references for them? --Redtigerxyz (talk) 04:36, 23 October 2008 (UTC)


suit of swords[edit]

still figuring out how to msg another user here, so sorry if im intruding. hoping to find out where you got the info re: the suit of swords. havent seen those archetypes attatched to the cards before.(ie the knight of swords as the berserker)

are there more for the other suits also, or even the major arcana? strange question i know.

much appreciated nangle@optusnet.com.au One eye war (talk) 09:50, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Aaron, May I also request the same information as One eye war? Please reach me at vampromero@yahoo.com —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vampromero (talkcontribs) 16:01, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Aaron, Any chance you can do this for the suits of Wands and Coins? I don't have the know-how, but I've been researching for a story and the suits of Swords and Cups have been wonderful to have. Even just a citation would be nice, then someone else can get the other suits up. --Megspayne (talk) 17:10, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

/* Surya's Feet */ explanation[edit]

I have posted a reading from the Matsya purana following your interesting post on Surya's feet. The main article does not cover this subject.Yoga teacher researching Surya's story for teaching purposes. Your post was made some time ago; did you get anywhere? Iconography proposes that Surya's feet are always shown wearing boots!--Graham401142 (talk) 09:32, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
