Panch means 5 and Amrit, Amrutham or Amrut means a holy drink. In Puran, Shastra and Ayurveda; it is described that Panchamrit is made up 5 nectars or ingredients in particular proportion. If it is combined in that proportion a very healthy nourishing Panchamrit is formed.
Origin of Panchamrit
The most popular mention of the drink can be traced back to Mahabharata (largest epic ever written in the history of Mankind!). In Mahabharata it is stated that the Panchamrit was perhaps one of the valuable ingredients that emerged during Samudra manthan or Ksheera sagar manthan (churning of the ocean of milk). The demons and gods who were part of the process had a very long fight in establishing their control over this amrit, because they knew that whoever had it will become immortal forever.
According to mythology, the five elements of this sweet concoction have symbolic meaning. For example – Milk represents purity and piousness and Honey depicts sweet speech and unity. (Because it is prepared jointly by bees) and Sugar represents sweetness and bliss.
All religious Hindu Pooja and functions are incomplete without the Panchamrit (Panchamrit Prasad). It is used as an offering during poojas (bhog prasad). It is used as a libation during Abhisheka(bathing the idols).
