Origin of Ayurveda

Ayurveda, the ancient health care system originated with the origin of the universe. Vedas are the world’s oldest form of literature. They’re written in Sanskrit, India’s ancient language. It is believed to be based on four eminent compilations of knowledge (Vedas) called Rig VedaYajur Veda, Sama Veda, and Atharva Veda.  The origin of Ayurveda is attributed to Atharva Veda where several diseases with their treatments are narrated. Thus Atharva Veda mainly deals with extensive ayurvedic information.

History

History of medicine is a fascinating subject as it is a saga of man’s struggle against disease. Ayurveda is the system of medicine that evolved in India and it has survived for millennia. It is believed that the ancient rishis or seers of India received the gift of Ayurveda from their Hindu gods about 5,000 years ago. Later, from the 6th Century BC to 7th Century AD there was systematic development of the science and it is called Samhita period when a number of classical works were produced by several authors.

It is said that the Hindu god Brahma, one of the chief triumvirate gods of Hinduism, created Ayurveda.

He then transmitted this knowledge to his son, Daksha Prajapati.

Daksha passed it down to the twin Vedic gods Ashwini Kumaras.

The twin gods became the physicians of the gods and the Devas of Ayurveda.

The twin gods presented Ayurveda to Indra, the king of gods.

Indra had three physicians as his disciples, namely Acharya Bharadwaj, Acharya Kashyapa and Aacharya Divodas Dhanvantari.

From Bharadwaj’s teaching, his student Agnivesha developed the fundamental Ayurvedic text of internal medicine.

Agnivesha’s disciple, Acharya Charaka then revised this body of work. This started the tradition of passing down the knowledge of Ayurveda from gods to sages.

They passed down their knowledge and practices to their students, with which the oral tradition continued on for thousands of years.
