Or their other Vaidik Darshanas which aren't defined in Shad-Darshana?

    Trika saivism darshana founded on Sivasutra is known as Shadardha darshana (6 and 1/2). This is also a Hindu darshana school from kashmir. Mar 10 at 4:12
  • @AmritenduMukhopadhyay Wouldn't say Trika is a Vaidika darshana as Abhinavagupta pretty much rejects vedas as inferior

In Sarvadarśanasaṅgraha, Mādhavācārya gives brief overviews of 16 darśanas, out of which 3 darśanas are nāstika viz. Cārvāka, Bauddha, & Ārhata (Jaina). The remaining 13 darśanas are āstika, which are as follows - Rāmānuja (Viśiṣṭādvaita-Vedānta), Pūrṇaprajña (Dvaita-Vedānta), Nakulīśa-Pāsupata, Śaiva, Pratyabhijñā, Raseśvara, Aulūkya (Vaiśeṣika), Akṣapāda (Nyāya), Jaimini (Mīmāṁsā), Pāṇini, Sāṅkhya, Pātañjala, & Śāṅkara (Advaita-Vedānta).

So, Mādhavācārya mentions 5 āstika darśanas (Nakulīśa-Pāśupata, Raseśvara, Śaiva, Pratyabhijñā, & Pāṇini), which neither fall within the ṣaḍ-darśanas, nor do they reject Veda.

    I guess, pratyabhijna is the trika darshan of kashmir because they have a text called pratyabhijna-hridaya. Mar 10 at 8:29
  • Aren't Pashypata Shaiva's Nastika, don't they not accept Vedic authority.

  • Do you have any source supporting that? Appayya Dīkṣita said that Pāśupata system is two fold, those that accepted śruti and those that did not. @Haridasa

  • @Bingming I have heard from fellow Vaishnavas they only accept Pashupata Agamas.

    @Bingming traditionally speaking our family is Iyer, so Smarta, but I prefer Ramunajas philosophy, but at the same time I want to pray to other devtas, but Vishnu as the main or chief devta or deva deva if you know what I mean.
