Moved article[edit]

I have moved the article from Gyalpo, which just means "King", to Gyalpo spirits which is what this article is actually about. I have also deleted the irelevent section "Other uses" that was there - as under this one could with equal justification include someting of every occurence of a translation into Tibetan of the Word "raja" - It is already perfectly clear from the opening para of the article that "Gyalpo" has other uses.

Lodru, while you're at it, what do you think about merging the orphaned Gyalpo Sum article to this one? Emptymountains (talk) 04:50, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Primary vs. Secondary Sources[edit]

Dear Yongten, Wikipedia is an encyclopedia based on secondary sources; as such, I do not have to provide the primary sources as you are requesting. That's not my job as a Wikipedia editor, as per wp:primary which states: "All interpretive claims, analyses, or synthetic claims about primary sources must be referenced to a secondary source, rather than original analysis of the primary-source material by Wikipedia editors."
