The language of Ayurveda is in Sanskrit, an ancient and
rich dialect of the sages and seers of the past. It is also the potent
language of mantra. Whereby uttering the syllables, we resonate, activate
and strengthen areas of our physical body.
A prayer to SHRI Danvantari (the Vedic bringer of Ayurveda)
(Phonetic spelling of prayer:)
aum sankham chakram jalaukam dadhad amruta ghatam charu dorbis chatturbhih
suksma svachhati hrdyamsuka parivilasan maulim ambhoja netram. kalam
bhodojjvalangam kati tata vilasach charu pitambaradyam, vande dhanvantarim
tam nikhila gada vana prauda davagni lilam.
Salutations to Him, Danvantari, who is holding with his four arms: a conch,
a wheel or disk of energy (chakra), a leech and a pot of amrita (celestial
ambrosia). In whose heart shines a very subtle, clear, gentle and pleasing
blaze of light. This light also shines all around his head and lotus eyes.
Who by his mere play destroys all diseases like a mighty forest fire.
