Have you or any loved one of yours been diagnosed with some serious disease? If yes, you might want to learn two very important rules that you will need to follow in order for you to be able to make right choices.
Rule 1: Do not panic.
Rule 2: Do not forget rule 1.
I am extremely grateful to my beloved father who moved on from his last Janma in Jan 2008. It was he who taught me to live like a courageous and principled man. He introduced me to the SBG and other Dharmic scriptures when I was a little boy. Ever since the beginning, whenever he taught me anything about spirituality, he made sure to cut any mumbo jumbo out and explain things to me in a rational and logical manner. He used to tell me a lot about great men and women of the past. One important attitude that saved my life in my worst accidents was that of fearlessness that he instilled in me since my age of two or three. I call it the ‘What next’ attitude. Whatever happens in life, just ask yourself ‘What next?’ or ‘Now that this happened, what do I do next?’ The most common causes of death of people who die in serious accidents, are shock and fear and the one who maintains a level head even the worst if situations, becomes a true survivor.
A person who has read and understood even a bit of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, which is the greatest mind management manual, has a stable mind, is always calm, balanced and composed. Such a person is called a ‘Sthithapragnya’. SBG 2:54-57.
Jai Shri Krishna.
The Verse no. 13 from the 8th Dashakam of Narayaneeyam composed by Sri Melpathur Narayana Bhattathiri in the 16th Century CE is a summary of the entire Bhagavatpurana.
This Shloka has been personally recommended by the Sage of Kanchi (Kanchi Mahaperiyava) Mahaswamy Chandrashekharendra Saraswati for people afflicted with serious diseases, particularly cancer.
This Mantra has been recommended by Kanchi Paramacharya for patients of serious diseases such as cancer.
NARAYANEEYAM, which is basically a summary of the Bhagavatapurana – भागवतपुराण, was composed by Melpatthur Narayana Bhatatthiri in the 16th Century CE. The NARAYANEEYAM consists of 100 Dashakams containing about 10 Shlokas or verses each.
This particular Shloka which is the 13th one from Dashakam 8 is a supplication to the Supreme Being for relief from illnesses.
I have personally taught this Mantra to some people who were afflicted with life threatening illnesses and they have seen miraculous results. However, what is most important is to have absolute faith along with offering complete Sharanaagati before the Supreme Bhagavan Krishna.
* This Dashakam is to be chanted by the person who is afflicted by disease because it says ‘You may remove all MY afflictions’. However, if you wish to pray for a family member or for someone close to you, you could chant the Dhanvantari Mantra, which is a Mantra requesting Bhagavan Dhanvantari for a ring of protection for the entire family or group of people.
