Kantatman – About Hindu God Kantatman

Kantatman is a deity mentioned in certain Vaishnava scriptures and some minor Hindu scriptures. He is the god of medicine. He is believed to have carried the nectar of immortality or Amrut.

He is the twentieth of the thirty-nine minor avatars of Lord Vishnu.

Some scholars are of the view that Kantatman is just another name of Lord Dhanvantri. This is because it was Dhanvantri who appeared with the nectar of immortality at the end of the churning of the ocean.

He is also equated with Pradyumna – son of Lord Krishna and god of love.
