Asha[edit]

Why does Asha redirect here? — goethean 14:58, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

cognate to avestan aša?[edit]

I really would appreciate someone sourcing this before they put it up. Not saying its not true, but its also quite unreasonable to make that statement without some reliable reference. --Gñāna (talk) 21:34, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

The result of the proposal was moved. --BDD (talk) 21:21, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

  • The current title, "Rta", is spelled incorrectly, as it omits the diacritical "" that is included in the correct title of the concept. In addition, the diacritical title is used throughout the article itself, as well as among many related articles, and therefore its current spelling is not only incorrect, but it is also likely to cause confusion about why the article's title is spelled differently from the word ubiquitously spelled correctly as Ṛta. — J~Pæst 04:17, 2 June 2013 (UTC) 04:17, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
  • I wonder if English language reliable sources use the standard Latin R. Red Slash 04:40, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment - Klaus K. KLostermaier A survey of Hinduism 1989 p130 "The hymns speak of ṛta, "the law, "as independent of the devas, standing apart and above them as an impersonal and infallibly ... The word ṛta is connected with ṛtu, the seasons, the regular round of spring, summer, rain, autumn, and winter." etc show that high quality sources which can use sometimes do, but would like to see eg. WP:SANSKRIT for more information on WikiProject Hinduism's consensus MOS. In ictu oculi (talk) 23:41, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Support. Articles, their titles and spelling should be relevant to the people that the topic is relevant to. This is how to engage lcoal editors or editors with specific interests. --SmokeyJoe (talk) 05:49, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
