Atharvavedic measures for treatment of diseases and longevity of people

Dr. Upama Barman Deka

The Vedas are believed to be the earliest literary record of the Indo-European race. The whole Indian thought and their traditional methods are represented in the Vedas. The Atharvaveda, which has no direct connection to the sacrificial performances, was connected to the belief and religion of common people. Through two classes of hymns namely, Bhaiṣajyāni and Āyuṣyani, the endeavor of the Atharvavedic seers or priests to cure diseases and to cause long life with the help of some herbs or medicinal plants, amulets, rakṣāsutras etc. has been reflected. These hymns along with their concerned practices reflects an interesting picture of primitive Hindu medicine.
