Please add IVC Pashupati Seal of Shiva in yoga pose

I, as an IP, can not edit this protected article. Confirmed/registered editors please add the following (A) file WITH (A) the first text, and (c) also add the 2nd text. Thanks.

The Pashupati seal, an early form of the Hindu god Shiva (or Rudra) in yoga position, showing a seated and possibly tricephalic figure, surrounded by animals.

Pashupati seal (2350-2000 BCE),[1], from Indus Valley Civilization shows an early form of the tricephalic or ithyphallic Hindu god Shiva (or Rudra), who is associated with asceticism, yoga, and linga; regarded as a lord of animals; and often depicted as having three eyes.[2][3][4][5][6][7]

Yoga is of three types, Karma Yoga - the salvation through good deeds, Bhakti Yoga - the salvation through devotion, and Hatha Yoga salvation through physical practice.[8]

@TerraCodes: and @DRAGON BOOSTER:: May I request you to help with this please. Please peruse and use these edit suggestions from me, if it makes sense to you. Also, I further suggest to merge the "Modern History: reception by western world" with "reception with other religions" into a combined "reception by others" (or some such heading) section. I am using "replyto' (incorrect template?) because I do not know how to call out for help or grab your attention. Thanks. (talk) 14:46, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

Nope. See Pashupati seal, which does not say "shows an early form of the tricephalic or ithyphallic Hindu god Shiva (or Rudra)", but says " It was once thought to be ithyphallic, an interpretation that is now mostly discarded", and "is purported to be one of the earliest depictions of the Hindu god Shiva". It also says "Writing in 2002, Gregory L. Possehl concluded that while it would be appropriate to recognize the figure as a deity, its association with the water buffalo, and its posture as one of ritual discipline, regarding it as a proto-Shiva would "go too far." (Possehl 2002, p.141-144)". Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 21:35, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 20 April 2018


 Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. Additionally, please state specifically what portion of the article needs to be changed, in a "Change X to Y" format. --ElHef (Meep?) 19:46, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
Every year this happens. Yog is vernacular (e.g. Hindi, Bengali, etc). Yoga is Sanskrit. To claim otherwise is ridiculous, even if modern vernacular yogis/jogis insist the vernacular is accurate. This debate has happened on this page multiple times...suffice it to say it is Yoga and not Yog. See Schwa deletion in Indo-Aryan languages. Ia Devat? (talk) 14:28, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Physical injuries - redundant sentence

The first paragraph of the 'Physical Injuries' section (currently section 7.2) describes how yoga can result in physical injuries, and goes on to set out some statistics about the number of practitioners in Australia who have reported injuries - so far, so good.

The second paragraph of the section is comprised of a single sentence 'Yoga may result in injuries'. I'm not disputing the claim, but the sentence redundant after the preceding paragraph. Would anyone object to its removal? If the quoted sources are useful, they could probably be appended to the introductory sentence of the first paragraph.

I think it is terribly repetitive in that section. --Gian (talk) 06:05, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
I moved the sources to support the first sentence in the first paragraph (which the offending sentence essentially paraphrased), and removed the redundant sentence.Girth Summit (talk) 07:27, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
