The Dhanvantari Mantra
The Dhanvantari Mantra glorifies the healing power of Sri Lord Dhanvantari and describes his physical appearance. This mantra has been taught in Ayurvedic colleges throughout India for several millennia.
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
We bow to Lord Dhanvantari holding in his graceful four hands a Conch shell, a Wheel, a Leech and a pot of heavenly nectar. Within whose heart shines the most pure and gentle beautiful blaze of light, which surrounds his head and emanates from his lotus eyes. On the dark water whose body is luminous and gleaming. Waist and thighs are covered in yellow cloth and by whose mere play All diseases are vanquished as if by a mighty forest fire.
