Dhanvantari Homa:

Dhanvantari is an Avatar of Lord Vishnu and the King of Varanasi. He appeared during the Samudra Manthan (Great Churn) holding the Amrit Kalash (elixir). He is mentioned as the God of Ayurveda in the Puranas. Dhanvantari is also referred as the Hindu God of Medicine by the great Indian expert of medicine, Sushruta.

Devotees worship Dhanvantari to seek His blessings for good health during Dhanteras.

Traditionally, Dhanvantari is depicted as Lord Vishnu with four hands, carrying the Amrit-Kalash, Shankh, Chakra, and Jalauka (leech). Some texts also show him as holding a conch, medicinal herbs, Amrit Kalash, and Ayurveda Granth (Book).

Dhanvantari Homam is an important Homam performed to Lord Dhanvantari offering obeisance to him. Dhanvantari is invoked in a Kalash and Ahutis offered in the sacred fire. When you perform Dhanvantari Homam, it is believed to reverse the health problems.

Dhanvantari Puja is performed to attain health, wealth and success by invoking the blessing of Lord Dhanvantari who is known as the celestial healer. The Puja is performed to cure illnesses making mind and body strong and thereby return to full health.

Dhanvantari Homam is performed by chanting Dhanvantari Mantra using 108 different medicinal herbs during the Prayog. These medicinal herbs when burnt release gases with medicinal properties in the atmosphere thereby cleansing the air and alleviating the ailments.

The father of Ayurveda, Lord Dhanvantari is believed to have appeared on the day of Dhanteras with the pot of elixir. Hence, Dhanvantari Puja and Yagna are performed on Dhanvantari Trayodashi, celebrated two days before Diwali Puja. The day marks the appearance of Lord Vishnu in His divine avatar of Lord Dhanvantari.

Dhanvantari Homam is considered a very beneficial Homam in Hinduism and is the best way to get relief from any kind of serious illness.
