There is no so-called complete list of 84 Siddhas/Mahasiddhas. The list avialable in present Mahasiddha article is basicallly a list of Abhayadattashri (c. 12th century CE) (but not in proper order). There is another list from Tibetan/Buddhist source, the list of Vajrasana (c. 11th century CE). The list which was presented here is the list of Jyotirisvrara (14th century CE), which is different and from a Indian/Hindu source. The differences are important for understanding the topic.Before deletion one should understand a little about the topic.Joy1963 08:12, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
Lead section of the article starts with Tamil meaning of Siddah, which may imply that "Siddha" word is unique to Tamil, but the term is widely used in India, particularly in spiritual context. In this background, the term "Siddha" needs to be described in general terms ( and not Tamil meaning ) which covers Indian context. I hope people will understand my point - as the word is generally used. No intention to undermine any language/groups.Rayabhari (talk) 13:27, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
