National Ayurveda Day is celebrated every year on the day of Dhanteras. Lord Dhanvantari is believed to be the god of Ayurveda and healing. According to beliefs, Lord Dhanvantari originated during Samudra Manthan. Lord Dhanvantari, who came out of the churning of the ocean, had the urn in his hands. For this reason, the birthday of Lord Dhanvantari is celebrated as Dhanteras before Diwali. In such a situation, National Ayurveda Day is celebrated on the day of Dhanteras, the birthday of Lord Dhanvantari, who is called the God of Ayurveda.
Lord Dhanwantari is called the form of Lord Vishnu who has four arms. There are conch and chakra in both the above arms. While in one of the two other arms, there is water and medicine and in the other, nectar urns are taken. His favorite metal is considered brass. That is why there is a tradition of buying brass utensils for Dhanteras. He is called the God of Vaidya Arogya who treats Ayurveda. It was he who discovered amritamayi medicines.
