bheda भेद

Definition: Is mentioned in the Atharvaveda as having come to a bad end because he refused a cow (vaiā) to Indra when asked for it. That he is different from the preceding Bheda, as Roth assumes, is not certain. Indeed, it may very well be that his defeat led to his being chosen as the representative of the evil end of the wicked man. Moreover, the irreligious character of Bheda may be ascribed to his being a leader of non-Aryan folk, if the Ajas and Sigrus, with whom in the Rigveda he is connected or associated were, as is possible, though by no means certain, un-Aryan tribes of totemists.
