Lord Dhanvantari – God of Healing and Medicine

Form of Lord Narayana taken to heal all bodily and spiritual ailments

May Lord Dhanvantari, the form Lord Narayana has taken to heal and remove illnesses of our body and mind, He who glows like the sun and who’s eyes are long and beautiful like the lotus petals, protect us during these times of pandemics and on a regular basis so that we may be fit to serve the Lord and perform good deeds in our daily lives || In His hand, He carries the Amrita Kalasa (pot of healing nectar) to impart onto those who are suffering from bodily and spiritual ailments. May the Lord, Shri Dhanvantari, bring peace to the afflicted inhabitants of Mother Earth. Hare Rama…Hare Krishna…

Below are chants found in the sacred texts that help with getting rid of illnesses, bad luck and any afflictions that may come to the physical body and the spiritual soul and mind:
