Happy new year![edit]

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Care to help? with an odd incident of Wiki editing?[edit]

Presearch, a few weeks ago I corrected a Sanskrit translation at the Ramana Maharshi page. It has to do with the Om namah shivaya mantra. The translation there was poor, to say the least. Well, another Wiki user reverted my efforts back to the original.

If you have any interest in stepping in, please do. I would do it myself but I feel sort of intimidated by the protocols here for interacting about Wiki editing. Here is the link:

Talk:Ramana Maharshi#Om namah shivaya

If you'd prefer, do of course simply advise me in how I can proceed. Thanks! Savitr108 (talk) 19:41, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

@Savitr108: the translation may not be the best; I don't know. But it's the translation that this specific source gives. If you change it into something which this specific source does not say, then that's not acceptable. But if there are other translations, you can add them, with source. As for which translation is best: I don't know. Maybe some source can tell us? Best regards, Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 19:58, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Friend, I will look at your source to see if I can figure out why that source shows a faniciful interpretation -- and not in any sense a translation. But in the meantime, do please note this from the definitive Sri Monier Williams Sanskrit-to-English dictionary, for the word namas, which becomes namaḥ (नमः) in this context due to sandhi rules:

namas (H2) n/amas [p= 528,1] [L=103845] n. bow , obeisance , reverential salutation , adoration (by gesture or word ; often with dat. e.g. raamaaya namaH , salutation or glory to raama , often ind. [g. svar-aadi] ; namas- √kRi , to utter a salutation , do homage ; ind.p. °mas-k/Ritya [ AV. TS. &c ] or °mas-kRitvaa [ MBh. BhP. ] ; n/amas-kRita , worshipped , adored) RV. &c [L=103846] food Naigh. ii , 7 [L=103847] a thunderbolt , ii , 20 [L=103848] gift , donation L. (H2B) n/amas [L=103849] m. (?) an inarticulate cry L.
