On 11 November, the Global Country of World Peace celebrated the day of Perfect Health, the Vedic festival of Dhanvantari.
Celebrating this occasion in November 2007, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, explained the nature of Dhanvantari and the significance of celebrating this day:
'Dhanvantari is a level of intelligence that is an aspect of the Constitution of the Universe that connects the unmanifest source of the constitution with the manifest expression of the constitution which governs the universe, which governs the health of the universe.'
Maharishi said that with the traditional Vedic recitations by Maharishi Vedic Pandits for today's celebration, 'our awareness has been awakened in terms of the total reality which is a combined status of manifest and unmanifest. Today is the day where our awareness is stationed on a level of all possibilities, inside outside, junction point, Dhanvantari. This is the day, Dhanvantari Day.
'Dhanvantari Day—we are on the junction point of relative and Absolute. We are on the level of the constitution of self-referral reality, which is the constitution of the ever-expanding universe.' Today's celebration, Maharishi said, 'has awakened in our awareness that reality which is together in oneness of infinite silence and infinite dynamism. Oneness of the two opposites, this is Brahm [Totality]. . . .
'In all these 365 days of the Indian calendar, this is the one day which is a unity of all the 365 days, and that unity of all 365 days in terms of Total Knowledge and total organizing power of pure knowledge. There is no hesitation to say that this is expression of the Constitution of the Universe. This is the expression of the Veda. This is the expression of Atma [the Self]. This is the expression of Brahm. . . .
'So this is the day of complete disclosure to pure knowledge, complete disclosure to life. This is the value of health. Health in the Vedic Literature is called ''Svasth''. ''Sva'' means Atma, and ''Stha'' means established in Atma. Healthy is he who is established in Atma. And ''established in Atma'' means established in the two opposite values—many and one, opposite values. It is the transcendental value of Brahm.'
In today's celebration in MERU, Netherlands, Dr Rainer Picha, director of Maharishi's programmes for health around the world, commented that Dhanvantari represents the all-pervading healing power of nature, 'that force of natural law which realigns the physiology with the perfectly orderly structure of natural law', thus eliminating the source of ill health.
'The influence towards better health from this most fundamental level of creation which is our own Self, Atma, the silent field at the basis of all creation—this is especially felt today, and especially enlivened through the performance of the Maharishi Vedic Pandits,' Dr Picha said. 'This influence is felt by all of us on all levels, individually and globally.' All of Maharishi's health programmes are based on this fundamental healing influence from the level of Atma, the unified field of natural law, he said.
Today was also a day to appreciate physicians across the globe who are bringing Maharishi's programmes for ideal health to the people of many countries.
