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. Dhanvantri is like Lord Vishnu, empowered to heal the Jiva souls. We bow to the Lord of Ayurveda. Dhanvantri Jayanti is dedicated Lord Dhanvantri, the Hindu God of Medicine or Ayurveda. Dhanvantri is the deity invoked and worshipped by Ayurveda Practitioners. Dhanvantri Jayanthi is observed during different times by different Hindu communities in different parts of India. Generally speaking, in most States of India it is observed on the day before Diwali. Dhanvantri is believed to have appeared during the Churning of Ocean or Samdura Mantham by Devas (demi gods) and Asuras (demons). Amidst the numerous auspicious items that appeared during the Churning of Ocean or Samdura Manthan by Devas and Asuras, Dhanvantri also appeared as elixir or Amruta. Dhanvantri is shown as holding the pot of Amrit in one hand and a leech in another hand. He is believed to have appeared to eradicate diseases threatening living beings. Dhanvantri (Dhanvantari) is the God of Ayurvedic medicine. According to the Hindu tradition, he is an aspect of the avatar of Lord Vishnu. Dhanvantari appears in the Vedas and Puranas as the physician of the Gods (Devas). For centuries, it has been an established practice in Hinduism for people to offer their fervent prayers to Lord Dhanvantari seeking his divine benediction for sound health, free from all aliments and diseases, not only for themselves but also for all, near and dear to them. Dhanvantri was an early Indian medical practitioner and one of the world’s first surgeons. Based on Vedic traditions, he is regarded as the source and fountainhead of Ayurveda. He perfected a system of herbs and roots - based Ayurvedic cures and natural remedies. He has been credited, among others, with the discovery of the antiseptic properties of turmeric and the preservative properties of salt which he incorporated in his overall regimen of cures. Tradition has it that he was a very skilled surgeon according to the standards of his time and that he was a pioneer of modern medical practices like plastic surgery. According to traditions, he taught surgery methods and procedures to Susrutha, the Father of Ayurvedic Surgery. As a result of the brilliant achievements of Dhanvantri in the field of Ayurvedic medicine, he was chosen as one of the Nine Gems in the Court of King Vikramaditya. The Nine gems during the reign of Vikramaditya were Dhanvantri, Kshapanaka, Amarasimha, Shanku, Vetal Bhatt, Ghata Karpara, Varahamihira, Vararuchi and Kalidasa the poet. Vikramaditya (102 BCE to 15 CE) was a legendary king of Ujjain, India, famed for his wisdom, valour and magnanimity. During his reign, India ruled most of Asia from the Eastern Arabia to China and North Korea and from Mongolia to Indonesia. He also imparted Vedic rituals to the Middle East and to North Asia. It was during his time that the knowledge of ancient India in disciplines like philosophy, science, astronomy and mathematics made its way to the Arabs which was later transferred to Europe during the period of the Crusades in the fourteenth century, leading to the growth of modern science, mathematics and philosophy in the Age of the European Renaissance in the sixteenth century. Dhanvantari is depicted as Vishnu with four hands, holding medical herbs in one hand and a pot containing rejuvenating nectar called amrita in another. The Puranas state that Dhanavantri emerged from the ‘Ocean of Milk’ and appeared with the pot of nectar during the story of the Samudra or Sagar manthan whilst the ocean was being churned by the Devas and Asuras, using the Mandara mountain and the serpent Vasuki. The pot of Amrita was snatched by the Asuras. Mohini, another aspect of Lord Vishnu appears and takes the nectar back from the Asuras.
