Veda

atharva veda

atharvaVeda

The atharva veda found its name from Sage atharvana. Unlike the three previous vedas, the atharva deals mainly with physical reality, it recognises that human society require materialistic possessions in order to satisfy worldly thirst.  Within vedic scriptures the atharva veda is the first to elaborate on socio-economic development and social law.

The veda mentions various deities who are not mentioned within the three earlier vedas. According to Sage patañjali the original atharva veda had a total of nine sahitās unfortunately due to time only two sahitās remains, śaunakīya and paippalāda.
