See Figure 7. It is the source of everything in the universe: both sentient souls and in sentient matter. Hence souls are temporary transformations of Para Prakrti: they arise from it and they disappear back into it at liberation. The search for liberation is thus, on this view, a search for a return to one’s source, something that is not true of any of the other twenty positions apart from that of Transformationist Vedanta. Indeed the closeness of this position to the parinamavada outlined in the previous section will be apparent.
How about the fact that the powers are said to come ‘from Mahadeva5 (mahadevat)? This may be incompatible with Abhivyaktivada, but it is quite compatible with Avesavada. And though it might not seem naturally compatible with Utpattivada, room seems to be left for the latter by the remark that what is meant by the impelling of the powers by Rudra is their arising in a bound soul following on from his will. It seems, then, that the surviving Pasupata sources do not teach a liberation doctrine that is developed and defined to the same extent as the Pasupata view recorded and argued against by Sadyojyotih and Ramakantha.
2 C árvákas By the end of the Buddhist section, Ramakantha believes he has established the permanence of the perceiver only from birth to death. Thus he has to overcome the Cárváka view that sentience arises from the body and neither pre-exists nor outlasts it. He argues that memory of past fives can be both directly perceived (in the case of those rare individuals who can directly re member some of their previous incarnations) and inferred. Two arguments are given to elaborate the latter claim, both based on the behaviour of new born babies.
