water will control fire, an umbrella provides shade from hot sun, a raging elepnat can be controlled with a spear, domestic animals like ox and donkey can be controlled with a stick. There are mecines to cure one of illness. There are mantras as remedy for snakes’ bite. But there is no means to cure a vain man of his vanity.
