Lord Dhanvantari is the God of Medicine (Ayurveda – a medical practice based on the principle that the body is made up of 5 elements – air, space, fire, water, and earth). He is acknowledged to have appeared during the churning of the ocean by Asuras (demons) and Devas (gods) when he emerged from the ocean holding a pot of the life-giving elixir, called – ”Amrit.”
He is also believed to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, the preservation aspect of the entire creation. The existence is supposedly actively maintained and manifested through Lord Vishnu’s will.
Moreover, the Lord of Medicine is venerated and adored in India as the God of health, long life, and immortality. He is usually depicted holding a discus or chakra weapon, the pot containing the nectar of immortality (that is used in a ground form in some traditional medicines), a conch shell, and is said to be the preserver of the living beings from all diseases.
As a matter of fact, he is the one who saves celestial beings from malady, death, and maturity. More importantly, according to some Hindu scholars, he has the ability to neutralize the effects of the poison and cure snakebites. In addition, he has the power to cure seemingly incurable ailments and prevent deadly diseases.
In the sacred Hindu text – Mahabharata, he has conjointly been known as Divodasa and Kasiraja. Currently, there are a few temples dedicated to him in South India, particularly in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, where Ayurveda tradition is highly patronized and practiced.

Jaya Shiva Shankara meaning and translation:
”Victory to the Auspicious One, the Destroyer of Doubt
Hail to the Remover of Evil, the Great God.”
”Jay Shiva Shankara Bum Bum Hara Hara! Hara Hara Hara Hara Hara Mahadeva!.”
It is a powerful healing mantra dedicated to Supreme Lord Shiva, the supreme God in Hinduism. He is the creator as well as the destroyer of the universe. Together with Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma, Lord Shiva represents the Trimurti (also known as Hindu Triumvirate).
Lord Shiva is the destroyer or transformer. In the Mahabharata, Lord Shiva is the equal of Lord Vishnu and adored and worshiped by other gods. However, in the epic Ramayana, he is a mighty and personal God.
He is both fierce and gentle. He is the greatest of renouncers as well as the ideal lover. Lord Shiva is also called the Lord of Dance, or the Nataraja. Furthermore, his most important dance is the Tandev – the cosmic dance of death, that he performs at the end of every age to destroy the entire creation.
His union with Shakti is represented by the symbol Shatakona, the six-pointed star and used to represent his son – Lord Murugan, the commander-in-chief. Lord Shiva is known to have untamed passion, that leads Him to extremes in behavior. Sometimes he is a hedonist. At others, he is an ascetic, abstaining from all worldly pleasures.
Lord Shiva’s wife was Goddess Parvati, commonly incarnated as Goddess Kali and Supreme Mother Durga. Actually, Goddess Parvati was a reincarnation of Sati (or Dakshayani), the daughter of the god Daksha.
His traditional abode is Mount Kailash in the Himalayas. In Hindu tradition, this mountain is conceived as resembling a Linga, symbolizing the center of the creation.
He is usually portrayed with a 3rd eye and is used to dissolve desires or aspirations to ashes. This eye is called Tryambakam. In classical Sanskrit, the word ”ambaka” is denoted as ”eye.” Lord Shiva also has a blue neck because, according to ancient Hindu tale, he swallowed a poison in order to save the creation.
The Trident of Shiva unites the 3 worlds of a human being and is linked with – his inside world, the immediate world around him, and the broader world. He is riding a bull. This represents that when you are truthful and righteous, the infinite consciousness, the innocent consciousness is with you.
