First edit at this pageEdit

yes they should be merged, but both spellings should lead to the same article. the s - sh issue is due to varying standards of transcribing the term into western (latin) letters. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 10:52, 2 February 2006‎


The definition in the lede does not accurately reflect the rest of the article. The Buddha renounced asceticism and luxury and followed a "Middle Way" (as described in the body of the article). I've added more rigorous citations on the meaning of the word sramana.

Table IssuesEdit

There is plenty of work on Buddhist and other Sramana logic. The row on "epistemology" in the table is very ignorant. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Girl professor (talkcontribs) 00:59, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
