Aarshaveda is a compound word consisting of two words Aarsha and Veda. ‘Aarsha’ means originating from ancient India or that originated from the ancient Sages of India. ‘Veda’ means knowledge or science. Hence Aarshaveda means the knowledge that originated from the ancient rishis and sages of India
The quest to maintain health and to overcome disease was the prime concern of human being from time immemorial. History says that the sages used to gather on the foothills of Himalayas and discuss and debate on various aspects of life including health and wellbeing. The Rishis are seers and they are the ones who know answers for all the requirement of spiritual, mental and physical needs of human beings. The remedies from their priceless wisdom evolved as oral traditional knowledge passed down from generation to generation through the lineage of teacher and student - (Guru- Sishya Parmpara).
Over centuries this wisdom from the Sages and Rishis passed down through the ‘Guru- Sishya Parmpara’ and was gradually documented to become the Vedas and the medical wisdom was mainly captured in Atharva veda.

 

Ayurveda originated from the medical wisdom of Atharva veda and Ayurveda is considered as Upaveda (means applied knowledge) of Atharva veda.

Later during the Samhitha period (the period in which the most ancient layer of text in the Vedas were written) the compilation and classification of this knowledge from Vedas materialized in to scientifically explained treatise like Charka Samhitha , Susruta Samhitha and later Ashtanga hridaya; which are now considered the main classical texts of Ayurveda.
