I do not believe that the paragraph discussing the Rajneeshees is relevant to this topic at all, and suggest that it be removed or displaced somewhere more appropriate. Solace098 15:20, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

I suspect this group was a part of the Rajneesh movement. Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh is often referred to as Bhagwan. I added a link to that article in top, since many people who search for "Bhagwan" are probably thinking of those red-clad people. Maybe we need a disambiguation page instead. // habj 06:17, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Gaurangaji, what do you mean by "ƒ" in words like "aśeṣataƒḥ"? It looks weird. Also, "the personality of 'Parashara Rishi'" looks strange, imho. Why not just "sage P.R."? 82.208.2.214 09:18, 4 February 2007 (UTC)Jan/VEDA

Hello again Jan - I'm not sure where the "ƒ" came from? If I have added anything to the Sanskrit by mistake then please correct it. My browser might not have copied the text correct when I cut & pasted it? I added 'the personality Parashara Rishi' to make it clear where the source is coming from (i.e a character or personality from the text) in a manner which also complied to WP:NPOV. You might like to think about creating an account? Best Wishes, ys, Gouranga(UK) 16:53, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
Ah, cutting and pasting is the reason. I'm on a public network and my IP can change anytime. So in past I've been contributing under several IPs. Jan/VEDA —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 82.208.2.214 (talk) 18:44, 4 February 2007 (UTC).

master of the vagina?[edit]

This book (Jordan, Michael (1966). Cults: Prophecies, Practices & Personalities. British Library. pp. 64, 110. ISBN 1858681677. ) says that Bahgwan translates as 'master of the vagina'. Is there any truth to this?--Auric (talk) 19:04, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Bhagavan and Bahgwan (assuming no typos) may be different. Even if they are same, the translation is a WP:FRINGE theory. I have seen no book having such a meaning. The word is usually translated as "Lord", "Supreme Godhead" etc. --Redtigerxyz Talk 12:56, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Cleanup Required[edit]

I am adding a banner for clean up on this page because it's sadly lacking in both sources and authoritative translations. There are also issues with tone, neutrality and clarity. I'd exhort any subject-matter experts to take up the work of fixing this page. Sreesarmatvm talkcontribs 02:50, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Bhagavan is the God-head said by the people of Indic language and God must be discussed only by the God's words not by the human-words . But this article is another attempt to make our Creator personalized which attempt is coming up to this day with the very idea committed the Creator polluted as creatures , such as Christian tried to establish Jesus/Isa as a son of God . This article starts with a image of Krishna who was only a mortal 'avatar' i.e. a mortal descended [in islamic idea its equivalent is 'rasul'] by the Everlasting Creator but the imagery avatar has been introduced in the face of the write-up as 'God' . Wikipedia has to rethink about the difference between the immortal Creator and the mortal creatures . I wish to edit this manipulated article with the help of comparative words from our Almighty Creator .Ajoy Mandravin (talk) 11:06, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
