At times when there is tragedy so great your heart aches with the thought of it, there is only one mantra that comes to mind: the Miracle Mantra, which lives in the realm of the heart and operates on a frequency beyond comprehension. When I need miracles, I call upon this mantra, "Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur." It brings in the miraculous powers of Guru Ram Das, Lord of Miracles.
Dhan dhan raam daas gur, jin siri-aa tinai savaari-aa
Pooree hoee karaamaat aap sirajanhaarai dhaari-aa
Sikhee atai sangatee paarbrahm kar namasakaari-aa
Atal athaa-o atol too tayraa ant na paaraavaari-aa
Jinee too sayvi-aa bhaa-o kar say tudh paar utaari-aa
Lab lobh kaam krodh mo maar kadhay tudh saparvaari-aa
Dhan so tayraa thaan hai sach tayraa paisakaari-aa
Naanak too lehanaa toohai gur amar too veechaari-aa
Gur dithaa taa man saadhaari-aa
Chanting this mantra makes the impossible become possible. There are miracles happening everyday, if we have the good fortune to see them. If we all chant together, maybe they can happen a little more.
