Basavanna was a 12th century philosopher, a Kannada social reformer and a renowned Shaivite. He is said to be an incarnation of Nandikeshwar by his followers. Basavanna is said to have found the Lingayata sect, a Shaivite sect which rejects the authority of the Vedas and downplays caste-system.
My question is whether or not did Basavanna outrightly reject the Vedas in any of his works? I am asking this since Shakyamuni too was said to have rejected Vedas but with a closer look and proper interpretation of his teachings reveal otherwise.So did Basavanna outrightly reject Vedas? If not outrightly, please provide his quotes on the authority of the Vedas.
