When the mantras in the veda samhita are converted into action called yagnya the braahamanas serve the purpose of a guidebook explaining how to use the mantras.
This portion of the vedas are meant to explain the inner meaning, the doctrine or the philosophy contained in the samhitas as mantras and the braahamanas as the karmas.

ATHARVA VEDA, the fourth book of the Vedas, the ancient scriptures of the Brahman religion.
Like the other Vedas it is divided into Samhita, Brahmanas and Upanishads, representing the spiritual element and its magical and nationalistic development.
The mantras or sayings composing the Samhita of the Atharva Veda differ from those of the other Vedas by being in the form of spells rather than prayers or hymns, and seem to indicate a stage of religion lower than that of the Rig Veda.

 Vedas and Upanishads by Sanderson Beck
After the Atharva Veda was accepted, each sacrifice required at least four priests, one on each side of the fire using the Rig, Sama, Yajur, and Atharva Vedas, plus their assistants.
The short Mandukya Upanishad is associated with the Atharva Veda and delineates four levels of consciousness: waking, dreaming, deep sleep, and a fourth mystical state of being one with the soul.
The antidote is to study the Veda, to pursue one's duty in each stage of the religious life, and to practice the proper discipline, which results in the pure qualities (sattva) that lead to understanding and the soul.

The Rig Veda, the oldest of the four Vedas, was composed about 1500 B.C., and codified about 600 B.C. It is unknown when it was finally comitted to writing, but this probably was at some point after 300 B.C. The Vedas contain hymns, incantations, and rituals from ancient India.
The Vedas are also the most ancient extensive texts in an Indo-European language, and as such are invaluable in the study of comparative linguistics.
The Sama Veda is a collection of hymns used by the priests during the Soma sacrifice.

According to tradition, the Atharvaveda was mainly composed by two groups of rishis known as the Bhrigus and the Angirasas.
The Jaina and Buddha texts are considerably more hostile to the AV (they call it or Veda) than they are to the other Hindu texts.

Die Atharva Veda Samhita ist eine der heiligen Textsammlungen des Hinduismus.
Man schätzt, dass der Atharva Veda in der zweiten Hälfte des letzten vorchristlichen Jahrtausends kanonisiert wurde, und auch dann erst mit den anderen drei Samhitas ("Sammlungen") auf eine Stufe gestellt wurde.
Als der Atharva Veda in den Kanon aufgenommen wurde, wurde er schlichterhand dem ''Brahmanen'' (Oberpriester) zugeordnet, obwohl dieser Priester eigentlich die drei anderen Veden auswendig können musste, damit er das Ritual aus dem Hintergrund beobachten und bei Fehlern einschreiten konnte.

Some European and Hindu translators of the Vedas have removed the name referring to the Prophet, while others have tried to explain away the mantras (verses) on his life events, Ka’bah, Makkah, Medinah, Arabia, and other events using the terminology of the Hindus, such as purification rituals, and lands and rivers in India.
