Dhanvantri Homa

For relief from all health problems

Who is Dhanvantari?


Dhanvantari is the divine physician who emerged during the churning of the milky ocean by the Devas (gods) and Asuras (demons). The Bhagavata Purana says that Dhanvantari appeared, holding the pot of amrit (elixir of immortality). Dhanvantari is worshipped in India as the God of Medicine and the physician of the gods themselves. The Scriptures say: “One who remembers the name of Dhanvantari can be released from all disease.” 

It is believed that Dhanvantari is the father of Ayurveda, a traditional Indian system of medicine.

The Charaka Samhita claims that the knowledge of Ayurveda is eternal. It is revealed in each of the cycles of creation of the universe. Dhanvantari is also believed to be the incarnation of Lord Vishnu himself, who incarnates to reestablish the tradition of Ayurveda in the world with the aim of relieving humanity’s suffering.

When the churning of the Milky Ocean occurred, Lord Vishnu said that Dhanvantari would reappear in the world to teach people the science of Ayurveda. It is said that Lord Indra requested Dhanvantari to descend to earth and teach Ayurveda to the human race after seeing humanity suffering terribly from pain and disease. During his incarnation as the king of Kashi, Divodasa, some sages (including Susruta, the great Indian surgeon) approached him and asked him to teach them Ayurveda., and he agreed.
