108 Names of Dhanvantri (Astotram)

illustration of dhanvantari (also known by 108 other names)

Dhanvantri (also known by 108 other names) is the perfect health aspect in consciousness.

This Lord of Ayurveda is the physician to the Divine Beings (Devatas). He is the preserver of life allowing us to experience our spirit evolving through our well-being.

People invoke “Lord Dhanvantri consciousness” to receive nature's support and enliven perfect health.

The 108 names of Dhanvantri are divided between those that are more suitable for morning and evening chanting. These are especially good to chant (inwardly) or listen to pundits (Vedic persists) chant on Dhanvantri Jayanti (the anniversary of when Lord Dhanvantri emerged out of the ocean to give Ayurveda to the need of the time). This day occurs two days before Diwali, around Oct/Nov each year.

It's Not Necessarily Good to Know the Translation of all of Dhanvantari's 108 names

Translations are there for only some of the names because when my teacher was translating to me, he stopped his discourse and decided not to translate the rest.

He realised his translations did not justify the deep meaning of these names. Sanskrit is an imitation by the human voice of the primordial sounds of nature.

It is not just on the level meaning. It expresses that aspect of nature.

Therefore, my teacher preferred me not to know the attempted translations nor analyse them.

I will however, provide the translations I have for those intellectuals (like me), as I personally love sanskrit and (some) of it's meaning.
