In jyotiṣa there is a saying that when Jupiter protects there is none that can destroy.

Vedapāraga (वेदपारग) refers to “one who has mastered Vedas”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.43.—Accordingly, as Śiva said to Dakṣa:—“[...] I am the knower of Self. I can be known through knowledge by those who have mastered Vedānta and the Vedas (i.e., Vedapāraga—vedāntaśrutipāragaiḥ). Deluded men engrossed in rituals alone cannot attain me through the Vedas, sacrifices, gifts or austerities. You wished to cross the ocean of worldly existence by observance of rituals alone. That was why I became angry and caused the destruction of the sacrifice”.
