    How is this too broad? I think it can be summarized. – Yogi Jun 8 '16 at 15:43
  • @Yogi May be they think like that, So lets see what other think , If maximum person disagree then I don't have any problem if it will close. – Shree Krishna Jun 8 '16 at 17:35
  • I think Wikipedia has a list that is fairly long: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astra_(weapon)#Astras_in_Hindu_Epics – Jedi Jun 9 '16 at 4:24
  • @Yogi This question is asking about mentioning all the Astra from Hindu scripture doesn't that make it too broad? – Ankit Sharma Jun 9 '16 at 7:22

    Though it is broad, I would love to see whole list at one place curated by a wiki post by our community. Anyway, try to make your post specific to one scripture like Mahabharata or Ramayana. I will vote to reopen then. – Mr_Green Jun 9 '16 at 15:21
