else in the world may have end-fulfilment or frustration; but not WANT. It is a
freak that has only origin, but no end. And lo! even on reaching the goal, it
thinks, it is still at the starting point and feels like covering many millions
of miles in a short space of life. Its thirst can never be quenched with the
waters of oceans, if converted by the Almighty's wand into delicious cool drink
refreshing. Its abhorrent nature poisons the hearts and vitiates the whole
atmosphere, Finding its shape horrible ; nature, cancerous; sages and seers
prefer limiting its size. Even that one too is not final, but nullification of
desire alone ensures passage to blissful heaven. Hence Prahlad's choice of
DESIRELESSNESS, when asked by the Omnipotent Lord to name his desire for boons.
What a lad ! How matrue!
