caraka primarily denotes a ‘ wandering student,’ a sense actually found in the Brhadāranyaka Upanisad. More especially it denotes the members of a school of the Black Yajurveda, the practices of which are several times referred to with disapproval in the Satapatha Brāhmana. In the Vāja­saneyi Samhitā the Caraka teacher (Carakācārya) is enumerated among the sacrificial victims at the Purusamedha, or human sacrifice. His dedication there to ill-doing is a clear hint of a ritual feud.
