This 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 Bhaagavatpurana – भागवतपुराण.
This Shloka has been personally recommended by the Sage of Kanchi (Kanchi Mahaperiyava) Mahaswamy Shri Chandrashekharendra Saraswati, for people afflicted with serious diseases, particularly cancer.
The NARAYANEEYAM consists of 100 Dashakams containing 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 illness.
I have personally taught this Mantra to some people who were afflicted with life threatening illnesses and they have seen miraculous results. However, what are most important are the absolute faith and total surrender before the Supreme Bhagavan.

* 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.
