Meaning Of The Mantra

We pray to God, who is Sudharshana Vasudeva Dhanvantri. He wields the kalasha, which is brimming with immortality nectar. All worries and sicknesses are banished by Lord Dhanvantri. He is the three worlds' well-wisher and preserver. Dhanvantri, like Lord Vishnu, can cure our souls. We bow before the Lord of Ayurveda.


It is recommended that Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi be worshipped as metal idols rather than plaster of Paris or other materials. Goddess MahaLakshmi, Maha Kaali, and Goddess Saraswati are the three forms of Goddess Lakshmi worshipped during the pooja.
