The Dhanvantri Mantra
Lord Dhanvantri is believed to be God of Ayurveda (medicines) in Hinduism. He emerged from the ocean bed during the Samudra Manthan (churning of the sea) of the Kshirasagara (cosmic ocean). For the unversed, the Gods (Devas) and the demons (Asuras) once took part in a tug of war to extract Amrita (divine nectar) from the ocean bed. First came the Halalala (poison), followed by the emergence of Dhanvantri, who held a Kalash (pot) filled with Amrit (elixir).
