Sanskrit Definition of Tirthankara[edit]

All books and references I've read have the Sanskrit as "Ford maker" not "Teaching God" and in fact, the Tirthankara are not Gods, but transcended humans. The reference to them as "Gods" at all is counter to the Jain religion and a misrepresentation. I will be editing to change this across Wikipedia as I see someone has systematically changed it in several places unless there is good evidence why this should not be. In addition to citing legitimate references, I'll consult with my local Jain community as well before making any edits. https://www.britannica.com/topic/Tirthankara[1] --Shanekenyon (talk) 00:14, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

tīrthaṅkara vs Tirthankara[edit]

Ogress In tīrthaṅkara, the character is not visible on my device. So I presume, it might not be visible on others as well. Should it be changed to Tirthankara? -- Pankaj Jain Capankajsmilyo (talk · contribs · count) 06:30, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Sure. Leave it in parens at the beginning. It was half and half earlier so I picked one. Ogress smash! 06:33, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Parentheses. Nvm, I did it myself. Ogress smash! 08:28, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
