Origin of Ayurveda:
The knowledge of Ayurveda is derived from the creator of Universe; Lord Bramha. He taught this knowledge to Daksha (Prajapati). Later on Daksha Prajapati, taught this to Asvin twins, who in their turn taught to Indra- the King of Gods.
When diseases and afflictions began to trouble the human beings, the great sages of the world, assembled in the slopes of the Himalayas mountain and resolved to learn the Science of Ayurveda.
As a fact, it was known to Indra. They decided to plead Indra and bring the knowledge to the world for the benefit of living beings. But who would undertake this difficult task, of going to heaven and learn the science from Indra?
Sage Bhardwaja, volunteered for the task which was gladly accepted. He went to Indra’s abode, learnt the science from him and came back to Earth. After that, he discussed the knowledge with all the sages in assembly.
Krsna Atreya, son of sage Arti taught this science to six of his disciples, Agnivesa, Bhela, Jatukarna, Parasara, Harita and Ksarapani. As the exam, each of them wrote a treatise and presented in front of their teacher Krsna Atreya and in the assembly of sages.
The treatise of Agnivesa was judged as the best and was even praised by Gods. It became popular in the world. Later on in 2nd cent A.D, it was revised and edited by Caraka muni. Thus the treatise is today known and popular by the name ‘Caraka Samhita‘.
