As a non-expert, the distinction between 'monk' and 'saint' is unclear. Could a clarification be added? (talk) 01:39, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

In itrans:

Namo ariha.ntaaNam 
Namo siddhaaNa.n
Namo aayariyaaNa.n 
Namo uvajjhaayaNa.n 
Namo loe savva saahuuNa.n

Some genius seriously mispelled the Devanagri text. I corrected is. IAST n corresponds to Devanagari न, not ण. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ndesi62 (talkcontribs) 16:50, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

The article contains ambiguity: in some places ण is used, and in some other places न. All the sources that I could find online consistently use ण, so I will change the article accordingly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:52, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

The title and the first sentence[edit]

I think that it is really confusing that the title of the article is "Namokar Mantra" but the first sentence begins with "Navakar Mantra" in bold. Either the title or the first sentence should be changed to match each other. I am no expert on this, so I don't know which is better, but I am changing the article temporarily to begin with "Namokar Mantra." —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:22, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

PS. It seems that the Devanagari transcription said "Namokar" anyway. One more discrepancy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:48, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Moved from the article[edit]

मंगलाणं च सव्वेसिं, पडमम हवई मंगलं

There is an error in the word padamama.

It should be paDHAmama. correctly shown in the transliteration.

On the edit [1][edit]

  1. Arihant is not "enemy-killer"; that is a folk etymology. Arhant has a solid etymology as "worthy of worship".
  2. The article on the Namokar Mantra is not an appropriate place to add a very large contribution of materials not on the Namokar Mantra - a gigantic list of the characteristics and habits of the various parts of the sangham longer than the actual article itself is not correct. It's not about the sangham, but about the mantram. That's why I put in the wikilinks to sadhu in the first place.
  3. IAST romanisation standards recommend a macron on Sanksrit romanisation of o.
  4. Cited sources in Tamil need to be translated.

I'd love to hear your feedback. I appreciate another editor interested in the Jainadharma! Ogress smash! 15:31, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

  1. Arihant is derived from two words: "Ari" i.e. enemy and "hant" destroyer. Hence Arihant is accepted by most scholars to mean as "Destroyer of enemies". The word "Arhat" and its derivative "Arahanta" mean worthy of worship. These were originally used. however some philosopher-monks started using "Arihanta" (destroyer of karmas, internal enemies). So I don't know whether it is folk etymology or not, but scholarly consensus translates "Arihanta" as "destroyer of enemies". Some references are: [2], [3], [4], [5]
  2. If not detailed, a brief description of the Pancha Parameshthi would add value to the article.
  3. I agree, Tamil phrases need to be translated.
