With this icky flu going around, its hard not to get worried especially when the media throws it in your face constantly haha.
Yes, my friends, the swine flu. No, wait, its called H1N1 now I think? Meh same nuisance.
Anywho, with any sickness, the Guru is there. Always.
Here's a shabad I really love because I'm always in bad shape and lately, my whole family has been feeling under the weather.
sorat(h) mehalaa 5
janam janam kae dhookh nivaarai sookaa man saadhhaarai
He dispels the pains of countless incarnations, and lends support to the dry and shrivelled mind.
dharasan bhaettath hoth nihaalaa har kaa naam beechaarai 1
Beholding the Blessed Vision of His Darshan, one is enraptured, contemplating the Name of the Lord. 1
maeraa baidh guroo govi(n)dhaa
My physician is the Guru, the Lord of the Universe.
har har naam aoukhadhh mukh dhaevai kaattai jam kee fa(n)dhhaa 1 rehaao
He places the medicine of the Naam into my mouth, and cuts away the noose of Death. 1Pause
samarathh purakh pooran bidhhaathae aapae karanaihaaraa
He is the all-powerful, Perfect Lord, the Architect of Destiny; He Himself is the Doer of deeds.
apunaa dhaas har aap oubaariaa naanak naam adhhaaraa 2634
The Lord Himself saves His slave; Nanak takes the Support of the Naam. 2 6 34
So don't you worry! Remember the true physician...
