Charvaka Philosophy

One recent post in EC actually inspired this one.

Pasting some stuff on this school of thought.

Chastity and other such ordinances are laid down by clever weaklings; gifts of gold and land, the pleasure of invitations to dinner, are devised by indigent people with stomachs lean with hunger.
.
The building of temples, houses for water-supply, tanks, wells, resting places, and the like, please only travelers, not others.
.
The Agnihotra ritual, the three Vedas, the triple staff, the ash-smearing, are the ways of gaining a livelihood for those who are lacking in intellect and energy.
.
The wise should enjoy the pleasures of this world through the more appropriate available means of agriculture, tending cattle, trade, political administration, etc.


In short, this is about Atheism, Hedonism and Materialism, quite opposite to other Indian Philosophies of Vedanta, Buddhism and Jainism.
