Sanchi, in Sanskrit literally means – ‘to measure’ and represents complete harmony between mind, body and soul. The two serpents – signify the two shades of human existence which physicians encounter – Life & Death, Health & Disease. The saying "Sharirmadhyam khalu dharmasadhanam" has been quoted from a dramatic poem called Kumarasambhavam by Mahakavi Kalidasa. It means " a healthy body is the means of fulfilments of dharma that is duty". The olive branch symbolizes peaceful living.
