Swayam Bhagavan uner Principal historic branches[edit]

Should red letter page Swayam Bhagavan listed here, be Svayam Bhagavan?

This is not an article on Vaishnavism. It is about the sectarian perception by a contemporary organization (ISKCON) of Vaishnavism. It should appropiately be referred as an article on ISKCON (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Society_for_Krishna_Consciousness) and its particular dogmas and phylosophycal positions. I am new to wikipedia so I do not know how exactly the process goes to review these articles to help improve their neutrality. Does someone review tha information? Who finally decides what stays and what goes? Saludos

Rig Veda extract[edit]

Does the quote from the Rig Veda really belong in the lead? Is this actually the generally accepted translation and interpretation? 70.75.233.253 (talk) 18:22, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Obviously do, source added. Bladesmulti (talk) 10:42, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
The IP is right: that interpretation of the Rigvedic verse may well be the ones preferred by Vaishnava devotees, but it is not the "standard" one. Vishnu is mentioned in the Rigveda but only as a minor deity. Bladesmuti, can you provide the exact quotes and context from the source you added. I couldn't access it on Google Books.

Neutrality[edit]

Obviously this entire article is written by ISKCON : — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jbgfour (talkcontribs) 14:04, 8 March 2015 (UTC) Since the 1900s Vaishnavism has spread from within India and is now practiced in many places around the globe, including America, Europe, Africa, Russia and South America. This is largely due to the growth of the ISKCON movement, founded by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Vaishnavism. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Merger proposal: Krishnaism into Vaishnavism[edit]

Done. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 02:57, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

It seems to me that Krishnaism more or less covers the same topic as Vaishnavism. Having two articles on the same topic is rather confusing. There's a lot of duplicate information, while the overview of the various sects could be clearer. I'd like to improve the article; it's weird that such an important topic is covered in such a confusing way. Having one article on the topic would make it easier to make the topic more accessible. The Vaishnavism article also draws about ten times more visitors, and has at least four times more page-watchers. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 14:27, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Three sections and the continued improvement of this article[edit]

@Joshua Jonathan: I like your edits. Are there specific sub-sections you would like me to focus on, among those marked 'expand section' (just wanting to avoid edit conflicts and duplicated work)? There are three subsections I would like to suggest: Vaishnava Upanishads, doctrinal differences/similarities between Vaishnavism-Shaivism-etc, Tantra in Vaishnavism. The last would clarify a few of the current subsections. If you are already planning to work on these, I will hold off. Ms Sarah Welch (talk) 15:48, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

@JJ: Aren't some images difficult to read, poorly done? Ms Sarah Welch (talk) 17:31, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

@Ms Sarah Welch: I'd like to add more info on the various traditions; so far, Flood will be helpfull. The three topics you mention are out of my comptence c.q. knowledge, so go ahead. And yes, some images, c.q. schemes, are difficult to read. But when they're given a bigger size, they dominate the article too much. Reader scan enlarge them themselves, though, by clicking on them. Thank you for your additions! Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 18:17, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
@Joshua Jonathan: The tantra in Vaishnavism part is probably best included in individual sub-traditions, where applicable, because it varies with each. I have woven in a bit of the tantra part in the Sri Vaishnavism section. If you think there is an alternate better way, let me know. Ms Sarah Welch (talk) 14:12, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Ref-fixes[edit]

@JJ: The harv cites to Welbon 2005 and Hiltebeitel 2013 do not link anywhere. Please check. Ms Sarah Welch (talk) 01:26, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

I've added Hiltebeitel. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 04:16, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
