An analysis of the Nyäyakusumänjali, however, reveals that such a classification is very misleading. It can be granted that all these schools were, in a greater or lesser degree, opponents of the Isvara doctrine and that they have been either explicitly mentioned or implicitly intended and refuted in this work; but to say that a particular chapter is directed against a particular school of opponents is not correct. For instance, even though it might be said that the first and the second Stabakas are directed mainly against the Cärväkas and the Mimämsakas 57 Ibid.

The first number refers to the page, the second to the line on that page. 46 The Author and the Work 4$f i—fio9 2 I. THIS WORLD IS DEPENDENT ON CAUSES 45, 1—2 If this world were not dependent, it would either be or not be, but would not be occasional (kaddcit). 4Qt 2 Refutation of the view that this world comes into being akasmdt. Udayana mentions five alternative ways in which the term ahasmät may be understood, namely in the sense of kärananisedhah, bhavanapratisedhah, svätmahetukatvam, nirupäkhyahetukatvam and svabhävaniyatatvam, and argues that in none of these senses the world can be said to be akasmät.

Jayanta's caustic remark to the Mimämsakas ibid. ; Sriharsa calls his opponent param manda (KhKhKh 279, 5—6). 52 Critique of Indian Realism, p. 120. 53 Cf. the introductory verse of LV: pranamya pärvatlnätham . , U. MISHRA (HIP II, pp. 155—156) maintains that "Udayana cannot be called a Saiva alone or a Vaisnava alone or even a Säkta alone", since all the Maithilis—Udayana is said to have been a Maithili—are at the same time Säkta, Saiva and Vaisnava. In my opinion, our only reliable source of knowing Udayana are his works and these do not give us enough evidence to characterise him as a Säkta or Vaisnava, except perhaps in the sense of the general "inclusivistic" tendency of Hinduism according to which he would have worshipped Sakti and Visnu as different forms or manifestations of Siva.
