One thing that struck me - in the Vishnu puranas, after Hiranyaksha is slain, it goes directly to Hiranyakashipu to avenge him - no mention of Andhak succeeding him there.  In the Shiva Puranas, you have Vishnu installing Andhak as Hiranyaksha's successor.  But wouldn't that have created either an alliance, or a power struggle b/w Andhak & Hiranyakashipu?  I can't recall any time that the rakshashas and asuras had multiple supremos.
Wouldn't creating 2 parallel power centers in Andhak & Prahlad have ensured that the asuras would have been in perpetual civil war, and never have been a threat to the devas? Evil Smile

Wicked, I say.

Well, our great Vyas bhagvaan and his successors didnt hav any work na... so they just wrote like that.. or maybe vyasa would have written it in SHiva PUrana but by the time he came to Bhagavatam (the last Purana) he would have been so excited to explain about Narasimha avataram that he would have completely forgotten about Andhaka...
Or as Kriti said, Andhaka story can be a later interpolation... Though, how does Andhaka story come (as in, appear) in Matsya Purana anyone?

well Don't know tht whether this query relates to Shiva or not..

but it's really a random question..

What is the difference between Asura, Rakshasa and a Daitya??

are they the synonyms of each other or they are sort of different tribes??Geek

Rishi Kashyap's 3 wives among 13 daughters of Daksh were Aditi, Diti & Danu. Aditi's sons were Devas, Diti's Asuras & Danu's were Danavas.
It is said that Rakhasas were created from the breath of Brahma when he was asleep at the end of the Satya Yuga. As soon as they were created they were so filled with blood lust that they started eating Brahma himself. Brahma shouted "Rakshama" (Sanskrit for "Protect Me!") and to save Brahma, Vishnu expelled all Rakshasas (named so because of Brahma's cry for help) to Earth.

Look at Krishna, who had 16108 wives! I guess that is why Mahadev has only one Parvati Devi!
