Buddhism and Dashain[edit]

I can't find any references for Dashain being the celebration of Ashoka's adoption of Buddhism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 27.34.47.84 (talk) 09:38, 11 June 2015 (UTC)


Merge proposal[edit]

Dashai (stub) and Dasain should be merged, but I am not sure which is the better article name. ::Supergolden:: 16:03, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

Dasain, I think - it's more accurate (The Nepali being 'Dasai~'(the tilde representing nasalisation), and, going on a google search, more common. BovineBeast 08:05, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
(September 25, 2009) I would disagree with this. The Nepali is दशैं. श is pronounced 'sha', while स is what is prounounced 'sa'. (see http://www.omniglot.com/writing/nepali.htm for example). Therefore, the transliteration should be Dashain, and not Dasain. Can this be addressed, and the Dasain stub be redirected to Dashain? Additionally, please note that all mentions of the word WITHIN the article are Dashain, not Dasain.

I think i use Dashai for most of my work but Dasai is also used frequently.

Does any one have any fact about this? From where did the author cited this sentence? Christianity having influence over Dashin?? "In general, the tradition of sacrifice is lessening with the easy availability of meat for daily consumption, and with the influences of Vaishnav Hindus (who are vegetarian) and Evangelical Christianity."

I removed the merge template, Dashai redirects to Dasain, also Dashain is a copyvio, so I tagged it for deletion. Jackaranga 12:34, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

stop slaughtering of animals[edit]

this act is inhuman . sacrificing animals. you are thinking that i am killing just one ,but there are so many like you who are killing many . imagine humans being slaughtered like this. only humans have feelings , not animals? we can speak but who will speak for one's who can't? wake up people . have you ever wondered why are we THE most intelligent? because God wanted us to. He had faith in us that we will take care of this world and others creatures but look what have we done and what are we doing. A man who is very rich and day and night he prays , he decorates lords idol with nothing but gold. one day an old needy man comes to his place for shelter and he kicks him out . do you think lord will be happy about this act? of course no. GOD doesn't want gold and food or BLOOD. HE JUST WANTS US TO BE HAPPY BY MAKING OTHERS HAPPY NO MATTER IT STARTS WITH ONE ANT. BUT WE ARE DOING THE OPPOSITE. so lets join our hand TOGETHER AND STOP HIS CRUELTY CAUSE THEY DESERVE BETTER. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 123.50.177.136 (talk) 15:57, 26 November 2009 (UTC)


Neutrality[edit]

I don't see any problem with the neutrality of the article. Many Nepalis sacrifice animals during Dashain. It is a fact. You cannot label the article to be non-neutral because of a fact that you don't like. This is an encyclopedia and should contain facts. However bitter it might be, a fact is a fact. Please put enough arguments to justify the need to nominate the article for check of neutrality. I am removing the nomination for now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.54.196.124 (talk) 00:12, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Gyan references[edit]

Gyan Publishing House is not a WP:RS, please see [1] for details. Please do not re-insert these sources which I have now removed twice from this article, but instead find another reference which is WP:RS, and, as should be clear, not from Gyan. 13:33, 4 October 2011 (UTC)JanetteDoe (talk)

Multiple issues[edit]

This article has multiple issues. See WP:NPOV and WP:CSB. Seek help from WP:HINDU or WP:NEPAL — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bineetojha (talkcontribs) 14:35, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Please give instances of what you think is a POV. Can't understand why long/POV issues exist in your opinion. --Redtigerxyz Talk 17:35, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
This article does not represent a world wide perspective of the subject topic. Obviosly it is written by a nepali hindu, and sounds like an essay written of the subject topic.And i request the task forces WP:HINDU and WP:NEPAL to completely review this article , which is within their scope. Thankyou |BINEET| 13:18, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Adigoonin order[edit]

What is the Adigoonin order? It is mentioned casually as though there were an expectation that people would know what it is, however, when I Googled it, ALL the references to that phrase are copied from this Wikipedia article. I am not a scholar of Hinduism or Nepal, so I really have no idea what this sentence is talking about. Could someone clarify it, correct it, or link to a Wikipedia article explaining it?Exaybachay (talk) 17:10, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Any additional comments:
  • The full Devanagari spelling is दशैं :: the copier left the anusvara off at the end, and the word transcribes to "daśaiṃ", which in modern Indian languages could be treated as meaning "Dashain". Anthony Appleyard (talk) 05:29, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Spelling[edit]

It is not Vijaya Dashami (Indian way of spelling), rather it is Bijaya Dashami in Nepali way of spelling.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 107.207.2.88 (talk)

Both Vijaya and Bijaya are written as विजया दशमी in Devanagari so both are used. — Ascii002Talk Contribs GuestBook 05:48, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
