In which veda(s) is Ayurveda included?


Ayurveda is treated as Upaveda of Rigveda and Antharveda.1

The Charanavyuha mentions Āyurveda as Upavedas of Rigveda. But Sushruta and Bhavaprakasha mention Ayurveda as an upaveda of the Atharvaveda. 2

So Ayurveda is treated as upveda of Rigveda or Atharveda.
