    This material world is a dangerous place.  In fact, if it had a Yelp review you would be quite surprised.  Every ancient saint of every tradition had the same thing to say.  Whether it was the Buddha, Jesus, or Śrī Krishna, all stated that this material world is a place of crises.  What is the crisis?
