The article Trijata you nominated as a good article has passed ; see Talk:Trijata for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Samudra manthan, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Naga. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Why did you remove references to Jainism?
- Malaiya, the Harivamshapurana claim was based on a WP:PRIMARY reference. The claim also contradicts referenced text in the article that state that Diwali was mentioned earlier in 7th century Sanskrit play. Diwali (Jainism) deals with Jain celebrations. http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/166786/Diwali Most encyclopedias define it as a Hindu festival. --Redtigerxyz Talk 06:51, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
- Removing references to Jainism and Sikhism and claiming it exclusively, presents a narrow perspective.
- It minimizes the significance of Diwali.
- It denies the shared traditions of the dharmic religions.
- the very earliest mention to the festival of lights on the amavasya of Kartika (Purnimanta calendar of North India, Maharashtra follows Amanta)is found in Jain tradition, in Kalpasutra of Bhadrabahu.
- the earliest mention of term Diwali is in Harivamshapurana as Dipali (Dipalikaya). The drama you refer to is Nagananda of Harshavardhana (incidentally a Buddhist text) that refers to some festival "Dipa Pratipada" There are no details and no dates. No month is given but presumably the tithi is pratipada.
I see that you can read and write Sanskrit. Thus you cannot claim not to understand Sanskrit texts. I can provide other references. What do you need?
Incidentally what do you mean by "it is primarily a Hindu festival"?
- The Diwali article is about the Hindu festival. There are sub articles about Jain (Diwali (Jainism)) and Sikh (Bandi Chhor Divas). Most encyclopedias Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of World Religions, Britannica, Religions of the World: A Comprehensive Encyclopedia of Beliefs and Practices, Religious Celebrations: An Encyclopedia of Holidays, Festivals ..., Oxford dictionary, Random House Dictionary, Collins English Dictionary define Diwali as a "Hindu festival". The simultaneous celebrations in the Diwali period by Jains and Sikhs are covered later in the encyclopedia (OR not covered at all). Wikipedia follows the former in line with other RS. The claims about Bhadrabahu and Harivamshapurana need to be backed by secondary RS, which they were not when they were added in the article.Redtigerxyz Talk 13:53, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
