Philosopher India – A step towards Myth discovery

Sanjeevani Booti – The only magical Plant (Booti) curing any woe

Sanjeevi is the name of the mountain with auspicious and medicinal plants on it. In Hinduism this mountain is said to be very sacred. Lord Hanuman brought this mountain with the medicinal plants from Dronagiri to cure Lakshman who had fainted in the war. It is mentioned in Ramayana that during the war between Rama and Ravana, Inderjit sent a powerful weapon towards Lakshmana. He was badly wounded and fell unconscious. Ayurvedic Physicians found that the wound had done deep enough to kill him. Hanuman was called to fetch Sanjeevani Booti from the Mount Sumeru in the Himalayas. Upon reaching the mountain, Hanuman failed to identify the magical herb and carried the entire mountain to the battlefield. Within a few minutes of smelling this life saving medicinal herb , Lakshmana gained consciousness and vigor to fight in the war. According to Hindu mythology, the herb called Sanjeevani Booti is capable of curing any woe irrespective of its type and origin.
