The subject matter of the Samhitā of this Veda has no systematic
division in the first twelve kāṇḍas. The last two again, deal with
miscellaneous topics. However, there are eight topics that are
1.Bhaisajya: diseases, their causes and cures
2.Āyusya: supplications for longevity
3.Paustika: worldly progress and welfare
4.Ābhicārika: destroy or harm enemies who obstruct progress
5.Prāyaścitta: expiatory rites
6.Rājakarma: political system
7.Brahmanya : nature of Brahman, the Absolute.
The Ābhicāraka Suktas are aimed to destroy or harm enemies who
obstruct our progress or try to destroy us. This is said to be
achieved by pleasing or appeasing certain deities or spirits and
getting one’s wishes fulfilled through them. This technique is called
‘yātu’ or ‘kṛtyā.’ The number of such suktas is rather large.
Destruction of one’s enemies including the lovers of one’s spouse,
annihilation of evil spirits, mesmerizing others through whom one can
get one’s desires fulfilled are some of the topics dealt with in these
suktas. The word ‘kṛṣṇendrajāla’ is sometimes used to indicate the
type of black-magic rites depicted here.
