But when it comes to his siddhAnta and related matters, h
arihan is the vishnu maya that incarnated to dissuade the asuras from
the path of dharma. arihan "mislead" the asuras and paved the
way for their dharma-chyuti. Thus, Siva could easily annihilate
those 3 asuras and became tripurAsurasaMhAra mUrti.
The chAru-vAka teaching were meant to mislead the asuras
and to prohibit them from performing vaidika karma kanda.
This vishnu mAyA is something like the mOhini avatAra whose
purpose was to mislead the asuras from partaking the nectar.
So, naturally in the present generation, the "chAru-vAk" philosophy
is very soothing to listen and practice.
No sandhyavandana, no gayatri japa, no devatarchana,
no vaisvadeva, no sthALipAka, no yAgAs & kratus,
no sva-veda shAkha adhyayana ......isn't it.
Is this not "chAru vAk" which would please so-called pseudo vedantins
who are interested in "Who am I" enquiry.
