Location[edit]

The pineal gland is mentioned twice as two different locations. Maybe the other one is the pituitary gland? Paranoidhuman (talk) 00:24, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

Typo[edit]

One can't contribute anymore to wikipedia? So much for the idea... had a good run while it lasted

There is a typo in the links sections: It should be: Shyam Sundar Goswami (not Goswani).

Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wiki2don (talkcontribs) 03:30, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

Could someone verify the pronunciation and maybe render it in IPA? "Aagya" doesn't quite deliver the correct pronunciation for everyone, and I'm not sure it is even correct. If the name is in Sanskrit, I'd guess that it's [ɑ(:)ʤɲɑ] in IPA. But please clarify if you know about this. --Oghmoir 10:46, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

Figured it out myself, then. --Oghmoir 22:28, 24 October 2005 (UTC)

I would appreciate a more "layman" pronunciation . . . what did you figure out? Please share. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.34.30.46 (talk) 14:04, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

[ʤɲ] is not necessarily the most common or most correct pronunciation of . The Sanskrit j was apparently originally a stop. It did become an affricate in other positions, but generally not before [ɲ]. I think [gj] is indeed a common pronunciation, so "Aagya" would be correct as an informal pronunciation guide. In Teach Yourself Sanskrit, Coulson suggests pronouncing as [gnj]~[gɲ], which would make this word [a:gnjə] ("Aagnya"). I doubt most English-speakers who learn this word from a book would pronounce it that way, though. It seems to me that I often hear as [ʒnj] or [ʒn], but I think that is purely a spelling pronunciation.—Nat Krause(Talk!·What have I done?) 04:13, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Edits[edit]

I have added more information about Ajna, but I don't have a lot of time now. I'm trying to find out exactly what the two petals signify, as I'm not sure --Krsnajinana 15:21, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

Please don't revert without you posting your objection on talk page, why is it always the other guy who has to start[edit]

I removed: 1) sentences or paragraphs marked with {who} or {fact} 2) See also links also linked from the body of the article 3) headings with only a sentence or two after them 4) a link to a blog, which is disallowed

Please don't revert, but selectively add back what you think is necessary, preferably with citation. Tunnels of Set 06:36, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Please note that listing see also entries which are already linked from the body of the article is discouraged as it is unnecessary. Tunnels of Set 06:51, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
