Kerala historic land

History begins here

From as early as 3000 BC, Kerala had established itself as a major spice trade centre. Kerala had direct contact across the Arabian Sea with all the major Red Sea ports and the Mediterranean ports as well as extending to ports in the Far East. The spice trade between Kerala and much of the world was one of the main drivers of the world economy. For much of history, ports in Kerala were the busiest (Muziris) among all trade and travel routes in the history of the world.

Kerala historic land of culture

The culture of Kerala is a synthesis of Aryan and Dravidian cultures, developed and mixed for centuries, under influences from other parts of India and abroad. It is defined by its antiquity and the organic continuity sustained by the Malayali people. Modern Kerala society took shape owing to migrations from different parts of India throughout Classical Antiquity. Kerala trace its non-prehistoric cultural genesis to its membership (around the 3rd century CE) in a vaguely defined historical region known as Thamizhagom — a land defined by a common Tamil culture and encompassing the Chera, Chola, and Pandya kingdoms. At that time, the music, dance, language, and Sangam (a vast corpus of Tamil literature composed between 1,500–2,000 years ago) found in Kerala were all similar to that found in the rest of Thamizhagom (today's Tamil Nadu). The culture of Kerala evolved through the Sanskritization of Dravidian ethos, revivalism of religious movements and reform movements against caste discrimination. Kerala showcases a culture unique to itself developed through accommodation, acculturation and assimilation of various faculties of civilized lifestyle.

The Chera dynasty also known as Kerala Putras, Cera was an ancient dynasty in India, ruling over an area corresponding to modern-day western Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Together with the Chola and the Pandyas, it formed the three principal warring Iron Age kingdoms of southern India in the early centuries of the Common Era.
By the early centuries of the Common Era, civil society and statehood under the Cheras were developed in present day western Tamil Nadu. The location of the Chera capital is generally assumed to be at modern Karur (identified with the Korura of Ptolemy). The Chera kingdom later extended to the plains of Kerala, the Palghat gap, along the river Perar and occupied land between the river Perar and river Periyar, creating two harbor towns, Tondi (Tyndis) and Muciri (Muziris), where the Roman trade settlements flourished.

According to Hindu mythology, the lands of Kerala were recovered from the sea by the axe-wielding warrior sage Parasurama, 6th avatar of Vishnu, hence Kerala is also called Parasurama Kshetram ("The Land of Parasurama"). Parasurama threw his axe across the sea, and the water receded as far as it reached. According to legend, this new area of land extended from Gokarna to Kanyakumari. Consensus among scientific geographers agrees that a substantial portion of this area was under the sea in ancient times. The land which rose from sea was filled with salt and unsuitable for habitation so Parasurama invoked the Snake King Vasuki, who spat holy poison and converted the soil into fertile lush green land. Out of respect, Vasuki and all snakes were appointed as protectors and guardians of the land. The legend later expanded, and found literary expression in the 17th or 18th century with Keralolpathi, which traces the origin of aspects of early Kerala society, such as land tenure and administration, to the story of Parasurama. In medieval times Kuttuvan may have emulated the Parasurama tradition by throwing his spear into the sea to symbolize his lordship over it. Another much earlier Puranic character associated with Kerala is Mahabali, an Asura and a prototypical king of justice, who ruled the earth from Kerala. He won the war against the Devas, driving them into exile. The Devas pleaded before Lord Vishnu, who took his fifth incarnation as Vamana and pushed Mahabali down to Patala (the netherworld) to placate the Devas. There is a belief that, once a year during the Onam festival, Mahabali returns to Kerala.
The Matsya Purana, which is among the oldest of the 18 Puranas, uses the Malaya Mountains of Kerala (and Tamil Nadu) as the setting for the story of Lord Matsya, the first incarnation of Lord Vishnu, and King Manu, the first man and the king of the region. The earliest Sanskrit text to mention Kerala by name is the Aitareya Aranyaka of the Rigveda. It is also mentioned in both the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, the two great Hindu epics.

Treatment and Wellness

It has good heritage in treatment and wellness

Ayurveda, the 5000 year old holistic system of healing, has eight specialized branches that correspond roughly to eight branches of western medicine. Ayurvedic physicians or ‘vaidyas’ who are equally proficient in all the eight branches are known as ‘ashtavaidyas’, for ‘ashta’ means ‘eight’. Ayurveda or the science of life is rooted in Nature. Kerala in South India has traditionally been the source of a rich variety of medicinal plants and herbs, thanks to its abundant sunshine, rich soil and generous rainfall. As a result, Kerala has a long history of folk medicine that was practiced by healers from all levels of society. Between the 6th and 7th century, it is believed that Vagbhata, an Ayurvedic physician from Sind came to Kerala in quest of rare and valuable medicinal plants. His arrival triggered a new dynamic medical culture, and the traditional healers of Kerala adopted his work ‘Ashtangahrdayam as the foundation of their system of medicine. They continued to draw on regional folk and medical practices too, and with their deep knowledge of the eight branches of Ayurveda as described in the Ashtangahrdayam, these healers became the Ashtavaidyans of Kerala.

The Ashtavaidya culture flourished between the 13th and 17th Centuries with generous royal patronage that nurtured scholarship and scientific research in medicine as well as in other fields. There were originally 18 Ashtavaidya families in Kerala, but the number has come down today. Each family developed its own specialized treatment procedures, and passed it down from generation to generation. However, there are other versions explaining the origins of the Ashtavaidya families of Kerala. . One belief is that Lord Parasuraman who brought Brahmins or Namboothiris to Kerala, assigned eight of these families as physicians, and these families came to be known as Ashtavaidyas, meaning Eight Physicians. There is another legend which says that eight prominent disciples of Vaagbhata and their families who followed the Ashtangahridayam method of treatment were the original Ashtavaidyas. It is even thought that Vaagbhata composed Ashtaangahridayam sitting on a rock near Thiruvizha temple.

Good health and well being

According to Indian culture for good health and well being

Ayurveda is a discipline of the upaveda or "auxiliary knowledge" in Vedic tradition. It is treated as a supplement or appendix of the Rigveda. However, some believed that Atharva-Veda is the prime origin of Ayurveda. The samhita of the Atharvaveda itself contains 114 hymns or incantations for the magical cure of diseases. Charak has advised in his samhita that physicians should adhere to Atharva-Veda. Origins of Ayurveda have been traced back to 5,000 BCE, originating as an oral tradition and later as medical texts, Ayurveda evolved from the Vedas.There are various legendary accounts of the "origin of Ayurveda", e.g., that the science was received by Dhanvantari (or Divodasa) from Brahma.Tradition also holds that a lost text written by the sage Agnivesa, a student of the sage Bharadwaja, influenced the writings of Ayurveda.
