Ayurveda, the 5000-year-old complete science of mind-body-soul health and healing from India, is one of the most ancient and well-documented systems of medicine, that is not only relevant in modern times, but gaining worldwide popularity by the day.
Its deeply holistic approach, which maintains the health of the healthy and helps the disease reclaim health from within by cooperation with the laws of nature and spirit, remains original and unparalleled. Prevention of sorrow through disease and promotion of joy through health is the main intention of Ayurveda.
Lord Dhanvantari is considered a divine propagator of Ayurveda as per ancient Ayurveda/Vedic mythology. Lord Dhanvantari represents ‘Immortal Consciousness’ which, when awakened within our hearts, helps us reclaim the sparkling health and well-being that is often waiting deep inside of us.
With Dhanvantari’s blessings, the aged become young again, the diseased become healthy and the sorrowful become joyful! That is the promise of Ayurveda too! That is why, on the traditional festival of Dhanvantari Jayanti, which celebrates the emergence of God Dhanvantari from inside the depths of a deep ocean, holding a pot of nectar (that represents life-giving Ayurvedic wisdom), was chosen for celebration of Ayurveda Day by the Government of India, to pay tribute to this amazing, clearly ahead-of-its-time complete system of medicine.
Ayurveda Day and its association with Lord Dhanvantari encourages practitioners and students of Ayurveda globally, and helps awaken society to greater awareness about the strength, power and potential of Ayurveda.
Join me and my worldwide community of Ayurveda seekers, students and beneficiaries as we pay tribute to God’s own medicine, Ayurveda, on the auspicious occasion of Ayurveda Day, Year 2019.
