Before the end of the Dvaparayuga, the four sections of the Vedas were not separate. At that time, the Vedas were a specific study of the three word-styles—Rik, Yajuh, and Sam. There are three types of word-use globally: more famous than verse, prose, and song. The verse has a clear rule of letter-number and foot and punctuation. Therefore, the name of the Veda mantras with a certain number of syllables and the foot and pause is ‘Rik.’

Mantras in which the number of syllables and the foot and punctuation are not observed the rules of the verse are called ‘Yaju:’ prose mantras. The more mantras are lyrical, the more mantras are called ‘Sam.’ It is based on these three types of word-publishing-styles that the word ‘trilogy’ is also used in scripture and folklore for the Vedas.

Listening to and remembering the Gurmukh during the Vedas recitation is of the utmost importance for the protection and success of the Vedas. That’s why the Vedas are also called ‘Shruti.’ hence The diligent practice protects the Veda, hence the name ‘Amnaya.’

At the end of the Dvaparayuga, Shrikrushnadvaipayana Vedavyas Ji divided the four Vedas into four sections to view the use of rituals and taught the four sections to four disciples. The four divisions are Rig Veda, Yajurveda, Sama Veda and Atharva Veda. Pal, Vaishampayan, Jamini and Sumantu-These four disciples taught Shakal to their various disciples. Because of this, those branches are becoming famous after their name.
