ಲೋಕೇ ಜರಾರುಗ್ಭಯ ಮೃತ್ಯುನಾಶಂ ಧಾತಾರಂ ಈಶಂ ವಿವಿಧ ಔಷಧೀನಾಂ |

Who is Dhanvantari? – Dhanvantari is the saakshaat paramathma avatara, who appeared during the samudra mathana.   Dhanvantari roopi paramathma appeared carrying Amrutha during samudra mathana.

“ಧನ್ವಂ” + “ಅಂತರಿ” = ಧನ್ವಂತರಿ   “dhanvaM” + “aMtari” = dhanvaMtari; 

“धन्वं” + “अंतरि” = धन्वंतरि

DhanvaM – means diseases;  antari – means – destroy.  That is Dhanvantary is the one who destroys all the diseases.   ಧನ್ವಂ– ಕಾಯಿಲೆಗಳು   ಅಂತರಿ – ಧ್ವಂಸ

  • Dhanvantary appeared twice – Once during the churning of ocean “Samudra mathana” where he brought in the “amrutha” – i.e., on Bhadrapada Shukla Dwiteeya – in the direct Srihari roopa – He was called as Abja

  • Dhanvantary appeared for second time as the son of Dirghatama on Karthika Bahula Dwadashi.   He in turn gave us the Ayurveda samhita with eight divisions – in the maanava avataara.  – He learnt Ayurveda from sage Bharadhwaja.  This is only loka moharnartha and to do the anugraha to the sage only.

  • Dhanvantari is said to be the founder of Ayurvedha.
  • Dhanvantari means ” paapa parihaaraka” – poorvajanma krutaM paapaM vyaadhirUpEna bhaadate”  –  Dhanvantari roopi paramaathma does the parihara of vyaadhi and bhava roga.   –  In the doctors, we have to do the chintana of Doctors – “vaidyO naaraayaNO hari:”

Chintana of Dhanvantari :

Dhanvantari holds jnaana mudre in one hand, and in the other holds amruta kalasha.  His kaanti is more powerful than the anantachandraa (many chandraas).  With his parama pavitra rays he is filling the power for the entire world.  He is paresha, he is the supreme for Rama brahmaadi devataas also.

One must do the anusandhaana that the amruthadhaare which is flowing from Dhanvantari murthy is falling on all the parts of our body, viz., our head, between eye brows, on the tongue, on the heart, on the chest, etc.  One who does the chintana will be far from all the hurdles.

This mantra removes ajnaana, duKa, our fears, all deseases, dangerous poisons,  This also removes our mental diseases and gives the paramasuKa in the end.

One who does the Dhanvantari Mahamantra japa, if he keeps his hands on the other by remembering Dhanvantari bhagavan, doing the chanting of Dhanvantri Maha mantra, he will be free from all diseases.  But this is applicable if he is a bhagavad bhakta, and he must have shraddha.

(Bhagavatha ashtama skanda adhyaya 8, shloka 31-34)

–  During the churning of the Samudra, a handsome purusha came.  He was broadshouldered.  He was tall,  his eyes were reddish, the colour of his skin resembled the cloud; was decorated with ornaments in all parts of his body;  had garlend.  dressed with peetambara.  Had his ears filled with karnabharana, had black and curly hair.  His step resembled that of a lion.  He was carrying the amruta kalasha in his hands.  He is the swaroopansha of Srihari.  He is the mukya drastara of Ayurveda shastra.  He had special ahuti in yajna.

धन्वंतरि वेद मंत्र – ಧನ್ವಂತರಿ ವೇದ ಮಂತ್ರ –

अयं मे हस्तो भगवान् अयं मे भगवत्तर: । अयं मे विश्वभेषजोऽयं शिवाभिमर्शन: । ऋग्वेद ।

ಅಯಂ ಮೇ ಹಸ್ತೋ ಭಗವಾನ್ ಅಯಂ ಮೇ ಭಗವತ್ತರ: |

ಅಯಂ ಮೇ ವಿಶ್ವಭೇಷಜೋಽಯಂ ಶಿವಾಭಿಮರ್ಶನ: | ಋಗ್ವೇದ |

Daithyaas snatched the amruta kalasha from Dhanvantary – Clarification –  As per Bhagavatam – it seems that the daithyaas snatched the amruta kalasha from the hands of Sarvottama Srihari easily.  Now, one will get doubt as to whether Dhanvantary was not having the ability to avoid snatching of the kalasha.    It is not so.  Infact Srihari knows that the daithyas are not eligible.  But still he told them that he will distribute.  But they didn’t had that much of patience till sharing of the amrutha.  Actually as per the agreement between the gods and daithyas the amrutha should have been shared equally.  But these daithyas snatched it with the sole intention of retaining with them only.  As such Srihari wanted to make the world understand that the daithyas do not deserve the amrutha.  So, he allowed them snatching the kalasha.

Sri Gopaladasaru did the ayurdaana to Jagannatha Dasaru with the shakthi of Dhanvantary Mantra only.
