## Chitragupta Article

Please improve Chitragupta article. It is a Hinduism related article and needs a lot of improvement and editing.

Good morning Chitransh Gaurav Advice what specific improvement required. The article as it stands is well developed with a lot of content. Prodigyhk (talk) 04:14, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
Good Morning Prodigyhk, the article Chitragupta needs more references; its introduction is too long, this content can be added to other subtopics; more multimedia files should be added; there are a few redlinks; infobox should be added with more information like his sons, etc. Regards ChitranshGaurav 04:14, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

## Nomination for deletion of Template:Transl

Template:Transl has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for discussion page.

Template:Transl is up for deletion. Pages like this, which use the International Alphabet of Sanskrit Transliteration (IAST) (or other systems), may suffer. Future edits may be tedious as a lot of Sanskrit texts are solely available in IAST format and not in the original script. Join the Wikipedia:Templates_for_discussion/Log/2013_September_6#Template:Transl and voice your opinions.

## Lopamudra

Reading this article, it sounds like this female character is mythical or legendary. For example, there is not even an approximate time for her life, no dating at all. But she is categorized on Wikipedia as if she was a historical figure. Can anyone clear this up? Liz Read! Talk! 17:11, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Lopamudra as well as her husband Agastya are semi-mythical. Both of them are attributed as authors of hymns in the Rigveda, an ancient Hindu scripture. However, in epic and Puranic texts, they also appear as characters of Hindu mythology. --Redtigerxyz Talk 06:14, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
Liz Lopamudra and her husband Agasthiar are historical figures. As per the information on the Government of India website, Agasthiar is believed to have lived during the 6th Century BC. Have now updated the page with the reference.Prodigyhk (talk) 12:57, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

## Article on Sanat Kumara in need of attention

Sanat Kumara is part of this project but I have no idea if what it says about Sanat Kumara and Hinduism is correct. Dougweller (talk) 21:33, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

The talk page has a post saying "Where is the reference to the Hinduism section? Hinduism doesn't say anything about Shambala, nor about Cosmic, Planetary and etc Planes, or even that Sanat Kumar rules over them.

About Mahabharata, it is said "These details are given in the last chapters of Mahabharata". Where?

"Sanath Kumar is the Planetary Lord. It is said that He receives the energies from higher planes, in the month of Aries, and transmits them to the Spiritual Hierarchy in the month of Taurus."

Again, where is it said?

All this sound very theosophic, but not hindu. Please, include the references, or change it" That was by an IP over a year ago. Dougweller (talk) 21:36, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Dougweller You may have noticed already that WP has 2 separate articles. The article Sanatkumara details the Hindu mythology and is part of this project on Hinduism. While this article Sanat Kumara that you have highlighted is not listed as under the Hinduism project, since it has much more information than from traditional Hinduism. Also, noticed that in addition to a small section on Hinduism, this article include a section on Marvel comics. :) Prodigyhk (talk) 12:40, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
Actually Talk:Sanat Kumara has the Hinduism wikiproject template on it, and as it discusses HinduismI was hoping someone could make sure that whatever it says is correct. Dougweller (talk) 11:33, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

## Karna

Karna is in dire need of cleaning. Also as the page is semi-protected it keeps getting lengthy edit requests. Please keep watch on the page. I will try to clean some of it but am sure i won't be able to do it all. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 06:10, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
