There are a few things that I find a little odd in the way this is structured. I haven’t written it, so I don’t want to change, as there may be some reasons behind the choices made which I do not understand:

  • The section “Texts” 1) only give the Fragment, as if there was only one text on Vajrakilaya, 2) gives details on that particular text that would belong on a page dedicated to this tantra.

A list of texts on Vajrakilaya would give the different Vajrakilaya tantras in the Nyingma Gyubum, and at least the main commentaries (the table of content of the 2 or 3 volumes of the bka’ rygud sngags mdzod could be a start). For the termas, there are probably too many. Actually what would be more interesting on a wiki page would be an explanation contextualizing the most important texts, rather than a very long list, or a random one.

  • Where do the list of the Major Vajrakilaya Practices” comes from? Who decided? If Ratna Lingpa’s is widely practised, the Dupung Zilnön is not.
  • Teachings given to the Rigpa sangha: doesn’t include Khamtrul Rinpoche extensive commentary on YNP in DB, Trulshik Rinpoche on YNP in Germany (2003 or 2005), or OTR’s teachings. (Where Khenpo Namdrol’s teachings basis of his book given in Rigpa?) Any reason for this?
  • Internal links seems a bit odd: why singling out these 3 links only: the internal links on Vajrakilaya are all found in the Vajrakilaya category (at the bottom of the page). --Gyurmé 12:27, 22 June 2018 (CEST)

What you say is true. I think it is because info is just being added at random and no-one has attempted to write a comprehensive entry. This is true of almost every page on the Wiki — and Wikis in general. As more info is added it is worth revising headings, creating separate pages for sone material, etc. Please feel free to change and add whatever you see fit. Everything you suggest sounds great. p.s.I don't think that Khen Rinpoche's teaching was given to Rigpa on that occasion. --adam (talk) 18:17, 22 June 2018 (CEST)

I would also add -- my favorite pet thing with Wikis -- to include the source for the information so anyone who wants could revisit and check or double-check the information. Kent (talk) 20:01, 22 June 2018 (CEST)

@Gyurme, feel free to enter all your changes! --Sébastien (talk) 13:05, 4 July 2018 (CEST)

I'll get to it, but I don't have the time at the moment. --Gyurmé 05:30, 5 July 2018 (CEST)
