Wherever I happened to read something about this Vedam, it is always referred as ‘Atharvam’.
Then how did the usage ‘Atharvanam’ came into existence ? Is it just a Tamil (altered) way of calling it or is there a certain background to calling so ?
Also why this Vedam alone triggers fear response in people as if it is full of sorcery and witchcraft ? Isn’t this perception incorrect ?
