Instead of transforming his home, his village, his state and his country, and thereby the world into a Prashanti Nilayam - the Abode of Higher Peace - man has made them arenas for wild passions like anger, greed, hatred and violence. Instead of making the senses - which are at best very poor guides and informants - his servants, he has made them his masters. He spends all his energies and the fruits of his toil for the satisfaction of the trivial and degrading demands of these untamed underlings. Oh, the pity of it!
