good of ayurveda
Lord Dhanvantri is one of the most popular manifestations of Lord Vishnu. He emanated from the milky ocean when the gods and demons churned it in pursuit of the immortal nectar. Lord Dhanvantri is considered the Father of Ayurveda medicine. He is the ultimate healer and the most benevolent Lord who removes all fears and diseases from the face of humanity.
Lord Dhanvantari is depicted as Vishnu with four hands, holding Shankha (conch), and a pot containing rejuvenating nectar called somah on the left side. On the right he is holding Jalauka (leech) and Yantra (mystical heeling diagram). He is often shown with a leech in his hand rather than the scriptures. His birthday is celebrated by the practitioners of Ayurveda every year, on Dhanteras, two days before Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights.
Chanting some of the most powerful mantras of Lord Dhanvantri will help alleviate the sufferings of humans and promote happiness and prosperity.
„Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaaya Dhanvantaraye Amrita-kalasha Hastaaya Sarva-amaya Vinashaaya Trailokya Naathaya Dhanvantri Mahavishnave Namaha.”
I bow down to Lord Dhanvantri, the Lord with four hands carrying a conch, discuss a leech and a pot of immortal nectar. In his heart shines a pleasing and brilliant blaze of light.
