This frail body is subject e’er to sickness. So that one suffers excruciating pain. The illnesses of Praana (mind), gall and phlegm Constantly invade this frail human body, Causing its blood and matter to be heated; The organs are thus gripped by pain. In a safe and easy bed, The sick man fells no comfort, But turns and tosses, groaning in lament. Through the Karma of (past) meanness, Though with best of food you feed him, He vomits all that he can take. When you lay him in the cool, He still feels hot and burning; When you wrap him in warm cloth, He fells cold as though soaked in sleet. Though friends and kinsmen gather round, None can relieve or share his pains? He who has not realized the truth of No-illness Much suffering must undergo, when sickness will strike, It is wise to practice Holy Dharma-The sure conqueror of illness!
