The ministers of Ravana spoke only what was pleasing to him; they were afraid and so, they proved dangerous counsellors. His brother Vibheeshana alone gave him the beneficial drug which would have cured him; but since it was not priya or pleasing, Ravana rejected it and fell into perdition. This is the message I bring – the Message that will confer strength, peace, hope and fulfilment. This message surely is hitha (beneficial), though it may not be priya (pleasing). A patient must take drugs and put himself through regimen that is beneficial; one cannot ask for only sweet medicines and comfortable regimen which please them. The doctor knows best and must be obeyed for the sake of recovery. The Vedas and scriptures are the greatest repositories of hitha, as they were won by penance and travail by sages and seers who were interested only in the welfare of humanity and the liberation of man.
