brahmapurohita Is found in the Kāthaka Samhitā and the śatapatha Brāhmaṇa where the St. Petersburg Dictionary gives the sense as * having the priesthood as its Purohita.’ This seems rather doubtful; more probably the sense should be ‘ having a Brahman priest as Purohita,’ unless the word merely means ‘ having the priesthood superior to it,’ as an epithet of Kçatra, the ‘warrior caste,’ which seems to be Weber’s view.
