Kauṣītaki (कौषीतकि, ‘descendant of Kuṣītaka’) is the patronymic of a teacher, or series of teachers, to whom the doctrines set forth in the Kauṣītaki Brāhmaṇa and in the Śāṅkhāyana Āraṇyaka, and the Śrauta and Gṛhya Sūtras, are referred. He is rarely mentioned elsewhere. The doctrine of Kauṣītaki is called the Kauṣītaka. The pupils of Kauṣītaki are known as the Kauṣī-takis in the Nidāna Sūtra, and in the Pañcaviṃśa Brāhmaṇa they with Kuṣītaka are stated to have been cursed by Luśākapi. Elsewhere they are called Kauṣītakins. If the Śāṅkhāyana Āraṇyaka can be trusted, there were among them at least two leading teachers, Kahoḍa and Sarvajit, the former of whom is mentioned elsewhere.
