PRALHAD SAID DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
PRAYENA DEVA MUNAYAH SWAVIMUKTIKAMA MAUNAM CHARANTI VIJANENA PARARTHA NISHTHA NAITANVIHAYA KRUPANAN SWAVIMUKTI EKO NANYAM TADASYA SHARANAM BHRAMATONUPASHYE Oh Lord, in general, most of the great saints, sages, yogis and rishis renounce the world, live in seclusion and observe silence in search of salvation/liberation for themselves. Since you are the only savior for my billions of brothers and since they can not get salvation
from anywhere else [in case I do not seek it from you for them], I do not want to be a mean person to seek liberation for myself alone. So says the great Pralhada as is articulated in SHRIMAT BHAGAVATAM. This is especially important in view of the fact that though stress [and hence conceptual stress also] is a universal phenomenon, it is not understood by all! Only a few fortunate ones would be able to understand and manage it. It is their privilege and DHARMA to help others in managing stress. In this regard it is interesting to note that in these days neither individual liberation nor individual stress management are possible! They are
intricately and inseparably bound with the liberation and stress management of billions others! Bhagiratha [who is said to have brought the river Ganga from heaven to the earth] and Prometheus [who is said to have stolen fire from the gods] to save the mankind and many others have set examples for us to follow.
