HYMN TO THE EARTH

THE ATHARVA VEDA, as you have read, is the last of the four Vedas in point of time.

The Veda is so called because it was revealed to the descendants of Rishi Atharvan.

Atharvan was the first great priest who produced fire by rubbing flint, on wood.

He was the first Rishi who established the path between the gods and men.

He got powers from the gods to overcome the evils of demons.

The Angirasas and the Bhrigus were the descendants of Atharvan.

So the Atharva Veda is also called Atharvangirasas.
