Over time, the positive auspicious side came to be celebrated and the name Atharva Veda became widespread. The Atharvaveda is a collection of 20 books, with a total of hymns of about 6, stanzas. Most of the hymns are poetic and set to different meters, but about a sixth of the book is prose.

You who simultaneously discharge the balasa, cough, udraja, terrible are your missiles, O fever, avoid us with them. I speak to Healing Herbs spreading, and bushy, to creepers, and to those whose sheath is single, I call for thee the fibrous, and the reed like, and branching plants, dear to Vishwa Devas, powerful, giving life to men.

Bring hither by thy shouts, O lord of wealth, the suitor, bend his mind towards her; turn thou the attention of every agreeable suitor towards her! How many gods and which were they, who gathered the breast, the neck bones of man?
