  About Ayurveda    
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of medicine originated around 5000BC. It is based on sound observational concept which has stood the test of time for thousands of years. The origin of Ayurveda is form Vedas which are the ancient books of knowledge, or science of the world. Vedas contain practical and scientific information on various subjects like health, philosophy, astrology, architect etc. The word Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term meaning “science of life”. Ayu means life or daily living, and Veda means knowing or science. Life according to Ayurveda is a combination of senses, mind, body and soul. Ayurveda considers the physical, mental and spiritual well being of a person to become healthy.
Ayurveda is a way of life rather than a medical science. Ayurveda help the healthy person to maintain health and diseased person to regain health. Ayurveda explains about one’s diet, daily routine, life style and activities to be followed on a daily basis and according to the climatic changes to keep himself healthy. Ayurveda explains how to live in a society. The practice of Ayurveda is designed to promote human happiness, health and creative growth.
According to Ayurveda there are 3 types of energies called Vata, Pitha and Kapha which, always flow in our body and maintain all normal bodily functions such as digestion, circulation, respiration etc. It has role to maintain mental health and memory also. These 3 energies are capable of maintaining the normal bodily functions when they are in a balanced state. The balanced state and imbalance of these energies can be understood by different signs and symptoms. Treatment is basically balancing the energies with medicines, food recommendations, physical and mental exercises.
Ayurvedic treatment removes the root cause to give a permanent cure. Medicines are prepared from natural source like herbs, minerals etc. Because it is natural they are accepted and assimilated in the body without creating any side effects.
  What is Vedas

The word "veda" translates from Sanskrit as knowledge or wisdom. The Vedas are perhaps the oldest written text on our planet today and are the most sacred texts of the Hindus. They were composed and performed orally over a lengthy period of time, with the generally accepted dates being from around 1500 BCE to 1000 BCE. They are considered by Hindus to be revealed literature, having originated with the Gods whose praise they sing.

The core of the Vedas is formed by the Mantras which represent hymns, prayers, incantations, magic and ritual formulas, charms etc. The hymns and prayers are addressed to a pantheon of Gods (and a few Goddesses), important members of which are Rudra , Varuna , Indra , Agni , etc. The mantras are supplemented by texts regarding the sacrificial rituals in which these mantras are used as well as texts exploring the philosophical aspects of the ritual tradition, narratives etc.

There are four Vedas:  
The Rig-Veda:- The date for the Rig-Veda was in controversy for a long time. The traditional date goes back to 3000BC, something which the German scholar Max Mueller accepted. However, modern historians have now reached a consensus that its oldest parts were written around a more cautious 1200BC.

As a body of writing, the Rig-Veda (the wisdom of verses) is nothing short of remarkable. It contains 1028 hymns dedicated to thirty-three different gods; these gods were, quite expectedly, nature gods. The most often addressed gods are Indra (rain god; king of heavens), Agni (fire god) and Rudra (storm god; the 'howler'). A sizeable chunk of the verses are also dedicated to Soma (the draught of immortality), which was a cool alcoholic brew made from the leaves of the soma plant and was drunk during sacrifices. The identity of the plant itself is subject of furious debate. In nature, however, it was somewhat similar to the brews that the American Indians used to consume before conducting sacrifices – to numb both the sacrificer and the sacrificee although human sacrifice was never a part of Aryan worship.

This oldest religious text in the world has10,589 verses which are divided into ten mandalas or book-sections. The oldest portions of the Rig-Veda are from books two to seven; the others were added later. The book-sections are arranged according to the number of hymns they possess.

The Sama-Veda:- The Sama-Veda or the wisdom of chants is basically a collection of samans or chants, derived from the eighth and ninth books of the 'original Veda', the Rig-Veda. These were meant for the priests who officiated at the rituals of the soma ceremonies – in full sway there could have as many as seventeen full rituals. As time went along rituals and ceremonies of worship became increasingly intricate and the simplicity of the original Rig-Vedic age was slowly forgotten. Thus a need arose to compile all the rituals and their chants in a book, as a sort of reference point for the priests whose functions this Veda clearly puts down.

It is not surprising that the Sama-Veda is better known for the precise meter of its poetry than for its literary content. There are also painstaking instructions in Sama-Veda about how particular hymns must be sung; this is perhaps because great emphasis was put upon sounds of the words of the mantras and the effect they could have on the environment and the person who pronounced them.

The Yajur-Veda:- The Yajur-Veda or the wisdom of sacrifices lays down various sacred invocations (yajurs) which were chanted by a particular sect of priests called adhvaryu. They performed the sacrificial rites. This is very much a ritual based Veda for although there are a few hymns to various Gods the main stress is on the theory of the ritual. The Veda also outlines various chants which should be sung to pray and pay respects to the various instruments which are involved in the sacrifice.

The Atharva-Veda:- The Atharva-Veda (the wisdom of the Atharvans) is called so because the families of the atharvan sect of the Brahmins have traditionally been credited with the composition of the Vedas. It is a compilation of hymns but lacks the awesome grandeur which makes the Rig-Veda such a breathtaking spiritual experience. It is roughly equivalent to the western magic spells and has incantations for everything – from success in love to the realization of otherworldly ambitions.
