To start with one of the delicious boon of Ayurveda is Panchamrut. I came across this Panchamrut in my childhood. Every auspicious puja we used to get one spoon panchamrut to be taken on right palm sip it and just without washing or wiping your hand run it over head so the sacred richness offer blessings on us.
What is this Panchamrut?
Literally Panch means five and amrut means an immortality drink. Panchamrut means a scared mixture of special 5 ingredients. In Indian mythology. There was a churning of ocean with the help of coiled serpent. On one side there were devas (Gods) and on other side there were asuras (demons) they kept churning ocean which spelled out ‘n’ number of material out of which one was poisons gas. This gas is supposed to be absorbed by lord Shiva to save the entire living being and not just absorb but also digest it without affecting himself. It is always represented by bluish grey shade of Shiva representing transformation post absorbing poisonous gas. Other thing that came out was a kalash filled with ‘Amrut’. Any one who consumes this ‘Amrut’ is supposed to gain immortality to a living being.
