This is the characteristic of a Vaishnava. Para-dukha-dukhe: a Vaishnava is always unhappy to see the conditioned souls unhappy. Otherwise, he would have no business teaching them how to become happy. In materialistic life, people must certainly engage in activities of animosity. Materialistic life is therefore compared to saàsära-dävänala **, a blazing forest fire that automatically takes place. Lord Shiva and his followers in the paramparä system try to save people from this dangerous condition of materialistic life.
