Aññatitthiya Paribbājakas (Pāli), Anyatirthika Parivrājakas (Skt.). Wanderers of other views. In Buddhist scriptures, the name for groups of non-Buddhist ascetics that were contemporaries of the Buddha. Because they were seen as rivals and competitors to Buddhism, they are generally represented unfavourably, though there is some evidence to suggest that the Buddha himself may have regarded them more highly than his own followers.
