Quantity:

Ayurveda, an ancient Indian System of medicine incorporates within itself, not only the techniques of treatment described in the samhita Texts, but many other traditional medicines, as well as manifold prescriptions.

For a developing nation like India, the repository of expertise knowledge and treatment which has not come down to us through codified sources but has been coming down the ages through shakhas of specialist physicians by way of sruti can also prove of immense value for providing "Health to all".

The various technical systems of treatment can be attributed to the practice of medicine and surgery that has either been handed over from one generation to the other by those who excelled in such areas through practical demonstrations. In Atharva Veda, however, three broad methods of treatment find mention :

  • Daivi Chikitsa
  • Mantra Chikitsa 
  • Asuri Chikitsa.

Daivi Chikitsa included medical treatment, while Asuri Chikitsa involved surgical and other allied technological approaches such as 'Siravedha' and "Dagdha Chikitsa".

Mantra Chikitsa, however, was a method of treatment that prescribed wearing gems and diamonds which were in consonance with the cosmic radiaction and light emitted in the atmosphere around and on the earth. Enigmatic as the system was, people termed it was mystic or magic treatment. The incantation or recitation of Mantra formed an integral part of Mantra Chikitsa.

The concept sought its origine in the primeval sound (dhavani) which later come to be identified with the "Supreme reality" by one famous school of Grammarians.
