Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, [1895] p. a242 1The shaft that Rudra hath shot forth against thy members and    thy heart,   Here do we draw from thee to-day, and turn it hence to every    side. 2From all the hundred vessels spread throughout the members of    thy frame.   From all those vessels and canals we call the poisonous matter    forth. 3Worship to thee, the archer, and O Rudra, to thy levelled shaft!   Yea, worship to thine arrow when it left the bow, and when it    fell!

1 Enakshi Ganguly = "Rudra is an earlier name for Lord Shiva. Just like Shiva, Rudra has a short temper, and is one of the most terrifying of all the Gods. He is an archer, and his arrows inflict disease upon his target, but he also has the power to heal. His powers are so great, that he is even deemed as the "Divine Physician": the one who holds all cures.  Source: http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Rudra"
