Joseph WalserEdit

Is Joseph Walser putting references in the page to "See Walser (2018)"? And if so, isn't this a violation of some original research provision or conflict of interest? Mark Froelich (talk) 01:25, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 9 April 2019Edit

Original Text: a town in the plains region of the modern Nepal-India border, and that he spent his life in what is now modern Bihar[note 3] and Uttar Pradesh.[25][17] Suggested Text: a town in the plains region of the modern Nepal , and that he spent his life in what is now modern Bihar[note 3] and Uttar Pradesh.[25][17] of modern India.

I suggest that Lumbini and Kapilbastu to be written as located in Nepal . The text says located in border of Nepal-India , which is very confusing . Mrcouthy (talk) 08:11, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

Mrcouthy, see Wikipedia:Gautama Buddha Birthplace sources and quotes.--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 20:21, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
  Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit semi-protected}} template. This appears to be extensively debated/researched, based on the page linked by User:Farang Rak Tham, and is not an uncontroversial change. NiciVampireHeart 03:10, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Buddhism is not a religionEdit

Modern scholars say that Buddhism is a science of mind training, not a religion. There is no worship of a deity. Buddha Shakyamuni was an example of what is possible for all to accomplish. His teachings are instructions to follow in order to achieve enlightenment. There are so many different teachings because there are many different types of individuals of different capacities for understanding. There should be 6 billion different religions (7.8 billion as of May 2018).

Buddhism is definitely a religion; and Buddha-worship was there right from the start, maybe even while he was alive. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 05:02, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
