In the Vishnu Purana
it is mentioned that Saindhavayana or Saindhava is one of the teachers of Atharva Veda
. Saunaka divided his Sanhita into two, gave one to Babhru, and the other to Saindhavayana. Saindhavayana was the founder of the school of Brahmans, the Saindhavas.
The principal subjects of difference in the Sanhitas of the Atharva-Veda are the five Kalpas or ceremonials. They are the Nakshatra Kalpa, or rules for worshipping the planets, the Vaitana Kalpa, or rules for oblations, the Sanhita Kalpa, or rules for sacrifices, according to different schools, the Angirasa Kalpa, incantations and prayers for the destruction of foes and the like and the Santi Kalpa, or prayers for averting evil.
