Lord Dhanvantari God of Medicine, Dhanvantari is regarded as the origin exponent of Indian medicine. Lord Dhanvantari emerged with the pot of ambrosia (symbolic of medicine) in his hand from the ocean when it was churned by the contesting gods and demons. He is viewed as the very incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He is said to have recovered ambrosia which had been lost, and thus obtained a share in sacrifice.
Dhanvantari also appeared to have been an actual historical person, although his precise identity is hard to be ascertained. He taught surgery and other divisions of Ayurveda at the instance of susruta, to a group of sages among whom Susruta was the foremost.
