Germ Killing Mantra From The Vedas

Long before the arrival of the 'Germ theory of disease',the Vedas housed a portion which describes pathogens and the specific sound formulae one needs to produce to destroy them.

The Vedas,originally received as cosmic sounds which were heard and experienced by various sages,were organised into divisions as the volume was too enormous.

In general,people know it as the 4 Vedas - Rg,Yajur,Saama and Atharva

The Yajur Veda is classified into Shukla and Krshna Yajur Veda.There is a branch of Krshna Yajuveda known as the Taittriya Shaakha.In this Shaakha ( branch ) , the Mantra Bhaaga ( original text in sound form ) and Braahmana Bhaaga ( that which contains commentaries,meanings and applications of the original texts ) are inter-mixed and there is no clear boundary of these parts in any portion of this Veda.Hence,the name Krishna Yajur Veda - meaning unclear ( not 'BLACK YAJUR VEDA as postulated by many )

The Taittriya Shaakha has many divisions - Samhita,Braahmana,Aaranyaka,Upanishad and Mantra Prashna-s

Aaranyaka refers to forest treaties - the lessons learnt traditionally in the forest regions.

The Aaranyaka of the Taittriya Shaakha of Krshna Yajur Veda has a portion that speaks on germs and the mantra ( sound formulae ) that can destroy them.This is found in the 4th Chapter, Anuvakas 36 & 37
