Atharva Veda : the origin of medicine, yoga and tantric texts

“While the mantras of the Atharva Veda were available at the time of Krishna Dwaipayana Veda Vyasa, he faced a lot of opposition when he wanted to add it to the Veda and create  a division for it. However his decision prevailed and the Atharva Mantras were included into the veda and classified as Atharva Veda. The samhitas of Charaka, Sushruta and Vagbhata, Yoga and Tantra texts have origins in the Atharva Veda. The reason Tantriks have a negative image, is the use some of them put it to. There is nothing bad in the Atharva Veda itself”… this is what I learnt from my Veda Guru.

Division of one Veda into four and development of many S’akas or branches.
