Не всё Тантра, что блестит

Synopsis: an article about Tantrik Sadhana of Vaishnavas and the danger of DevatAntara Sambandham 

Вопрос: "Почему Вайшнавы не поклоняются Шиве, Ганеше и прочим полубогам?"

Ответ: "Извечный глупый вопрос, на который

Never abandon Bhagavan Shree Vishnu (or Shiva)

The following words of Skanda from "Shree Skanda-Purana" are very crucial from Tantrik point of view (in Tantrik Traditions Puranas are often interpreted in Tantrik Light). 

So, Skanda speaks not only about abandoning Bhagavan Shree Vishnu, but about abandoning Tantrik Sadhana. 
As you know, once a sadhaka gets Mantras and other Amshas of Sadhana from Guru, he should never deviate and abandon. In case of sadhana abandoment, curse and subsequent adverse births ("state of life" as Skanda says in the cite) are "earned". 
Though, good news - you will hardly find a sane Tantrik person falling from his sadhana even in Kali-Yuga, because Tantrik Sadhana stipulates very noble adhikar and The Protection of Shreemati MahaLakshmi-Devi and Bhagavan Shree Vishnu. 

And in Our Sampradaya (Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya) we are especially protected by Shreemati MahaLakshmi-Devi and Her Kavacha.  

Aishvarya of Bhagavan Shree Vishnu and Humkaras

हुङ्कार huGkAra (artha "hissing or humming sound")

Yes, Bhagavan Shree Krishna uses infrasonic weapons a lot. In case of Krishna हुङ्कार means very furious, ominous and annihilating mass of sound. 

कुयोगिन् kuyogin

कुयोगिन् kuyogin (artha - bad yogin or impostor)

This word is very interesting too, the special word for Kali-Yuga, which is notorious for abundant religious kinks and abnormalities.

The artha is not only "impostors", but designates all religiously feeble pashus in Kali-Yuga: religious sellers under the guiese of advanced yogins, "megaphones" of false doctrines under the guise of yoga and etc.

Another interesting Sanskrit word with "KU" prefix is कुवाद (kuvAda) which refers to guru offenders and fault-finders (there is a billion of them in Kali-Yuga too).

A genuine devotee of Rudra

The following plot twist from "Shree Skanda-Purana" reminds very much the moral dilemma of Arjuna from "Shree Bhagavad-Gita". 

According to the plot Skanda ought to annihilate Daitya (demon), but the demon was rather advanced worshipper of Rudra. 

The dialogue between Bhagavan Shree Vishnu and Skanda follows:

One more example of contradictory word from Sanskrit

निखर्व (nikharva) - found in "Shree Skanda-Purana".

The meaning is very funny: 1. Dwarf, dwarfish 2. Billion

Yes, both arthas are truly impossible to reconcile.

Interesting simile from "Shree Skanda-Purana"

The following Verses are from "Shree Skanda-Purana". Technically this is a simile, but what makes it exceptional it is the gradual movement from rather mundane similes towards lofty Mantra-Siddhanta!!!
