Srila Vyasadeva, a very learned sage , wrote four Vedas around 6000 years ago, in India. They are arguably called to be the oldest written texts present. The four Vedas are

The Rig Veda,

The SamaVeda,

The Yajur Veda and

The Atharva Veda

Charaka, an Ayurveda Physician during BC 300 added his own easy-to-understand compilation of Agnivesa Samhita. He re-named it as Charaka Samhita. Because of his efforts, he is sometimes referred to as the Father of Indian Medicine.

“Ayurveda” is a segment of “Atharva Veda” that talks about wholistic health system, Be it beauty, diseases or emotional wellness. “Ayur” means ” Age” and “Veda” means “knowledge.”. so Ayurveda is said to be the ” Science Of Life”.

Just like the five great elements of nature i.e. space, air, fire, water, and earth, we have Our five senses inside our body which act as perfect portals between inside and outside realms of life.
