Please add Shriram Sharma in gurus, saint, philosophers section-->Modern because he has his own wikipedia page and was great philosopher, saint, translated vedas and founded All World Gayatri Pariwar Shivamdpatel (talk) 19:15, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

 Not done That article (Shriram Sharma) is atrocious. It's promotional, non-neutral and badly-written. Clean it up and ask again. Fish+Karate 14:27, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

What does it do?[edit]

Nowhere do I see an explanation of what this template is for, or what it does. When I paste it into my sandbox, the result is blank.--Thnidu (talk) 01:19, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Never mind. I am using my mobile device, and I happened upon Ms Sarah Welsh's comment above, specifically

...wikipedia app for mobile devices does not even display it.

This ought to appear as a warning somewhere high up in the documentation. I'm not putting it in, though, because I can't even see it, and anyway it should be done by someone active in the project. --Thnidu (talk) 01:36, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Image template vandalism[edit]

@Ms Sarah Welch:

  • There has been image template vandalism past few days, please take note. 117.198.242.203 (talk) 20:05, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

"Gurus, Sa[i]nts, Philosophers"[edit]

Is the word "saints" misspelt in that area, or is there just a word that I don't know of? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bug2266 (talkcontribs) 21:57, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Sants is a word, and it is not same as saints. See this for an RS. Ms Sarah Welch (talk) 18:13, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

Significant changes and non-RS plugs into the template[edit]

I have reverted some of the changes in recent weeks. Let us discuss the changes and I urge the editors to provide WP:RS to support any changes they make. Ms Sarah Welch (talk) 18:13, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

Add Grāmadevatā to the "Other topics" section. 216.158.244.248 (talk) 00:34, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

 Question: Could "Deities" be a more appropriate section? 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 09:57, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
@𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰: I don't think the IP will respond...
I do agree that "Deities" is a more appropriate section. Maybe you will feel like making the change now? ~ Aselestecharge-paritytime 13:46, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
 Done @Aseleste: I hope I got the section right, and as I did not see any order in the items, I added the article to the end. Feel free to change that if it is not correct. 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 16:43, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

In Texts section Please include Sangam Literature aswell. For reference see List of Hindu texts article. Most of Tamil texts dated from 2nd century BC to 10th century CE comes under this. This is umbrella term for those.

Proposal: Pruning redundancies, moving parts of this template to other templates, and possibly a new template[edit]

  • This template has gotten quite large, which is understandable given the extent and depth of Hinduism. I wonder if it may be better to move part of it over to other templates to allow this one to be pruned a bit. In-fact these templates already overlap significantly, which only adds redundant bulk to all them. Pruning the redundancy would help with the bulk and also eliminate any confusion about where new additions should go and which template belongs where.
  • In particular, I think it may be best to move parts of the Concepts list, particularly the "Ontology", "Mind", "Ethics", and "Epistemology" sublists, to Template:Hindu philosophy. To keep the relevant articles connected it would be necessary to swap the sidebars on many of these articles, but I don't mind doing this.
  • The Texts list could similarly be trimmed by moving material to Template:Hindu scriptures and texts and using that template on relevant articles.
  • The Gurus, sants, philosophers list is extensive and largely disorganised, only grouping names into three vague time periods. Organising the list would add a lot more bulk to this sidebar, so I think it may be best to create a new navbox like Template:Catholic saints. Like that navbox, the new one could be more organised than the current list here at this sidebar. Organising the list better at a new navbox wouldn't just allow this sidebar to be pruned a bit, but would also make it clearer who is included and why. In contrast, the current arrangement invites editors to add names arbitrarily.
I suggest pruning all individual names from this template, moving them to a navbox, and listing only prominent named groups with collective articles like the Alvars and Nayanars here, with a link to the list article for particular individuals.
Anyone have any thoughts, objections, or suggestions? - Scyrme (talk) 17:43, 18 November 2021 (UTC)

Please add Tirumurai and Naalayira Divya Prabandham in Texts part of this template and give title as Tamil Hymns or someother relevent subtitle.

Reason: Tirumurai and Naalayira Divya Prabandham are most popular and notable Hindu texts. You can refer the articles Tirumurai and Naalayira Divya Prabandham for reference. They are also present in Template:Saivism and Template talk:Vaishnavism in their scriptures section. I think this is missed since it is Tamil literature and only sanskrit is considered. 106.198.109.185 (talk) 16:48, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

 Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. ― ItcouldbepossibleTalk 15:27, 21 December 2021 (UTC)
