In the Hindu culture, Lord Dhanvantari is regarded as the deity of health as well as the physician
of gods. Ayurveda, the most ancient medical discipline, is believed to be enumerated by him.
Thus, he is respected greatly by the practitioners of Ayurveda and people aspiring for good
health. He is usually depicted as carrying a pot of Amrita (nectar) in his hand, and there is a
very interesting story behind the same. As per the Puranas, once the Devas (gods) and Asuras
(demons) were churning the ocean to retrieve the lost nectar. Finally, Lord Dhanvantari
appeared out of the ocean with the pot of nectar in his hand, which is also a symbolization of
good health and wellbeing
In the ancient texts, Lord Dhanvantari has been mentioned as an incarnation of the Supreme
Lord Vishnu. Thus, he also carries a Shankh (conch) and Chakra ( a weapon) in his hands, the
symbols of Vaishnavites. This brilliantly crafted brass statue portrays the lord along the same
lines, unleashing his ancient wisdom yet enchanting freshness. The vibes of an all-knowing and
father-like figure are present in the very essence of this statue, signifying the grand stature of
the lord. Seeing the calm face of the lord, one feels immediately assured and certain of the
presence of a divine force. The subtle carvings, exotic pieces of jewelry, and fine ethnic
clothes just add to the divinity of the statue.
The essence of Lord Dhanvantari lies not in the aura he presents, but the path that he shows.
Walking upon his path, health and wellbeing is a natural consequence. This statue embodies
the greatness and legacy of the Lord in the purity of brass, making his appearance even more
glorious and enchanting.
