In 2016, the 45th year anniversary of the Yoga Farm, Swami Vasishtananda and Swami Sitaramananda led a procession to all the temples and installed the New Dhanvatari temple All proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward building the new Dhanvantari Temple at Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm in Grass Valley, California. Lord Dhanvantari is the Divine Healer in Yoga and Ayurveda. This temple will help focus the experience of all of our guests on the healing of body, mind and consciousness. According to DAVID FRAWLEY (AYURVEDIC HEALING), “Within all of us is the archetype of the Divine Healer. This Divine Healer is the true healer in all beings, not any particular individual or special personality. To heal others or ourselves we must set it in motion within ourselves. DHANVANTARI represents this truth in the tradition of AYURVEDA. His status is found at most AYURVEDIC schools and clinics. It is a reminder that however much we know or skilful we become, everything still depends on the grace of spiritual nature. Commonly worshipped as the Hindu God of Medicine, the Master of Universal Knowledge, Physician of Gods and the Guardian Deity of Hospitals, DHANVANTARI is regarded as the original exponent of Indian medical tradition called AYURVEDA, the ‘eternal science of life.’ This tradition is now accepted as the oldest, most original and unbroken medical system of the world. The Dhanvantari Temple is on a gentle hill not too far from Krishna temple and will be surrounded by an herb garden and Lavender fields. The land there is very pristine and the spiritual vibrations are very strong. There are many deer that roam freely around the temple grounds.
