Dhanvantari Mantra for Good Health lyrics in Sanskrit:
„Om Namo Bhagavate
Shri Mahavishnave Namaha.”
Translation in English:
„Salutations to Him, Lord Danvantari, who is holding with his 4 arms: a conch, a wheel or disk of energy, a leech and a pot of celestial ambrosia. In whose heart shines a very subtle, gentle, clear and pleasing blaze of light. This light also shines all around his head and lotus eyes. Who by his mere play destroys all illnesses like a mighty forest fire.”
He is the God of Ayurvedic Medicine and is considered to have appeared during the churning of the ocean by Asuras and Devas, when he emerged from ocean holding a pot of celestial ambrosia, the life giving elixir.
Lord Dhanvantari appears in the Puranas and Vedas as the medic of the devas, and the god of Ayurvedic medicine. It is a usual practice in Hinduism for devotees to pray to Lord Dhanvantari seeking his blessings for perfect health for themselves or others.
Outstanding authorities on Ayurvedic medicine were also honored in medieval and ancient India with the honorific Dhanvantari. Hence, the name Dhanvantari refers not only to the progenitor of Ayurvedic medicine but is also linked with a rich medical tradition and a hierarchy in the history of medicine in India.
He is portrayed as Lord Vishnu with 4 hands, holding Chakra, Shankha, Jalauka and a pot containing rejuvenating nectar, which is also called amrita. Lord Dhanvantari is frequently shown with a leech in his hand rather than the sacred scriptures.
