Suchitra S Patil, Amit Singh and Nagarathna R

Background: Ayurveda is upaveda if Atharvaveda. There are many studies available on importance of tridoshas and relationship with personality and diseases. Also there are review studies available on medicinal concepts of Atharvaveda. But there no studies available on concepts of trisdoshas in Atharvaveda.
Objective: The main objective of the study was to review the concepts of Vedic gods in Atharvavaeda and correlate with the concepts of Tridosha.
Methodology: Complete review of Atharvaveda text and Ayurveda scirptires like Charaka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita, Astanga sangraha, Astanga hrudaya, Kashyapa Samhita was done.
Results: Forty mantrās, from 20 Khandās of Atharvaveda, are related to Vāta; 40 mantrās are related to Pitta; and 30 mantrās were found related to Kapha. The functions of Vāyu and Prāna were found to be similar to the explanation of Vāta in Ayurveda texts; the functions of Sūrya and Agni are similar to the descriptions of Pitta in Ayurveda Samhitas; and the functions of Soma, Chandra and Varuna are similar to explanations of Kapha in Ayurveda texts.
Conclusion: The explanation given for Vedic gods like-Vāyu, Praāna, Agni, Sūrya, Soma, Chandra, Varuṇa can be correlated with the concepts of Vāta, Pitta and Kapha and their functions. This emphasizes the point that Ayurveda is a part of Atharvaveda.
