Abstract: The glory of Ancient Indian Literature is evidently adored in its approach towards upholding the value of life, and is patently exhibited in the culture, heritage and civilization. The discussion of literature instigates with Vedas, the paramount source of Wisdom of Life. Vedas are the authentic literary which divulges the secret and perseverance of life. Vedas are four in number; Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samaveda, Atharvana Veda. Each Veda has its Upavedas and Ayurveda is the Upaveda of Athrvana Veda. Ayurveda is the science which deals with disease, their treatment aspects and importantly the preventive aspect with proper lifestyle adoptions. Ayurveda also gives prime importance for the attainment of Purusharthas which replicates the significance of Ihaloka and Paraloka Karma in an individual’s life. Jyothishya Shastra; an imperative part of Veda, is attributed as Vedanga - includes study of Graha Nakshatradi Padartha. As it is also called as Vedic Astrology in recent days. Jyotishya Shastra also possesses a similar scope in terms of prevention and treatment of Karmaja Vyadhi, which can be co-related to Daiva-Vyapashraya Chikitsa in Ayurveda. This paper is an effort to understand the importance of these two analogous sciences with respect to Chikitsa.
