INDIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Hindu and Buddhist Gods of India...

DHANVANTARI

Indian legendary mortal

A mortal who held the first cup of AMRITA — or was it SOMA?

He was not allowed to drink it so it was probably Soma as Amrita was a sort of porridge of immortality. I suppose it could be slurped. Anyway, never mind that.

DHANVANTARI was given the status of Heavenly Physician with special dispensation to teach mortals. Perhaps you pay your money and take your choice.
