DHANVANTARI


DHANVANTARI

Om Namo Bhagavate
Maha Sudharshana
Vasudevaya Dhanvantaraye;
Amrutha Kalasa Hasthaaya
Sarva Bhaya Vinasaya
Sarva Roka Nivaranaya
Thri Lokya Pathaye
Thri Lokya Nithaye
Sri Maha Vishnu Swarupa
Sri Dhanvantri Swarupa
Sri Sri Sri
Aoushata; chakra Narayana Swaha!
(Meaning:
We pray to the God, who is known as Sudarshana Vasudev Dhanvantari. He holds the Kalasha full of nectar of immortality. Lord Dhanvantri removes all fears and removes all diseases. He is the well wisher and the preserver of the three worlds. Dhanvantari is like Lord Vishnu, empowered to heal the Jiva souls. We bow to the Lord of Ayurveda.)

Dhanvantari Mantra
Om shankham chakram jalaukam
dadhad amruta ghatam charu dorbhi chaturbhih
Sukshma svacch ati hridyam sukha pari vilasanam
maulim ambhoja netram
Kalam bhodojo valangam kati tata vilasan
charu pitam baradhyam
Vande dhanvantarim tam nikhila gada vanam
praudha davagni leelam
Aum Namo Bhagavathe Vasudevaya Dhanvantraye,
Amruta Kalasa Hasthaya,
Sarvaamaya Vinaashanaaya Thrailokhya Naathaaya,
Shri Mahavishnave Namaha ;

"Om Namo Bhagavathe Vasu - devaya Danvantraye,
Amritha Kalasa Hasthaya,
Sarvamaya Vinasanaya,
Thrailokya Nathaya,
Sri Maha Vishnave Namaha."

Lord Dhanvantari is known as the father of Ayurveda,
Dhanvantari has many myths and legends woven around him. He emerged with the pot of ambrosia (symbolic of medicine) in his hand from the ocean when it was churned by the contesting gods and demons. He is viewed as the very incarnation of God Vishnu.

Dhanvantri, the physician of gods, who appeared at the churning of the ocean is worshipped on this day, specially by the physician-community. He is the father of Indian science of medicine and Ayurveda is attributed to him. He is also called Sudha pani, because he appeared from the ocean, carrying nectar in his hands.
Salutations to him, Lord Dhanvantari, who is holding a conch shell, a disc of energy, a leech, and a pot of celestial ambrosia. In whose heart shines a subtle, clear, gentle,and pleasing blaze of light that also shines around his head and lotus eyes.On the dark blue water his body is luminous, splendid, and shining. His waist and thighsare abounding in bright yellow clothes.Who, by his mere play, destroys all disease like a mighty forest fire.
