Image/caption queries[edit]

  • Could you pump up the caption for the opening boffo color image? I see in its commons data there is some text (which you of course are not honor bound to use--in fact, you can change the commons text if you see fit).
  • You have many eternal links labeled "to iconographic image of x." Are there some copyright problems that prevent you from actually posting them, or are you leaving out the images for space's sake.

From my (shaky) understanding of wiki's complicated copyright rules, the images are pd because they are ancient, no matter where you found them (who has the copyright on the Mona Lisa?), unless so specified in bizarre litigiousness cases like with the reproductions of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

My suspicion is that the images certainly are free.

The question isn't the date of the painting, but the date of the photograph of the painting. Of course proving when the photograph was taken or by whom would be next to impossible. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:41, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  • those were put in by someone else last year. I haven't touched the iconography section as of yet. Vajrayosidbhagesuvijahara (talk) 04:20, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Might "Saroruha" be Saraha and might "Kongtrul" be Jamgon Kongtrul?[edit]

As I read the quote about the origin of the Hevajra Tantra in India on the entry page, I wonder if the person listed as "Saroruha" might be the same as the mahasiddha Saraha?

Could the figure named "Kongtrul" in that same section be Jamgon Kongtrul?

Any thoughts?

India section needs more citations[edit]

Can anyone provide more of the necessary citations for the information that is in the India section? It is not clear where all this information comes from, especially in the last part of the section.
