Shlokas & Veda Mantras
नमामि धन्वन्तरमादिदेवं सुरासुरैर्वन्दित पादपद्मम्।
लोके जरारुग्भयमृत्युनाशं दातारमीशं विविधौषधीनाम्॥
"Om Namami Dhanvantaramaadi Devam Surasurairvandita

I bow down to the primeval, supreme God Dhanvantari, whose lotus feet are worshipped by all Gods and demons; who gives different types of medicines to eradicate diseases, old age problems and fear of death in the world.
God Dhanvantari is the manifestation of God Vishnu, the Lord of Ayurveda and the ultimate healer of all the living beings. He holds the Kalasha filled with the nectar of immortality and protects all of the three worlds. The above shloka is recited regularly with sanctity (After the bath with fresh clothes) to seek God Dhanvantari's blessings and medical remedies in abundance to cure the sickness confronting humanity.
गुरवे सर्वलोकानां भिषजे भवरोगिणाम् ।
निधये सर्वविद्यानां दक्षिणामूर्तये नमः।।
"Gurave sarva lokaanaam, bhishaje bhava roginaam,
Nidhaye sarva vidyaanaam, Dakshinamoorthaye namaha"
