Here, Kulasekhara describes the state of Chetanas. He says that a majority of them have fallen into the deep and dangerous ocean of Samsaaraa. They are buffeted by the wild winds of shallow pleasures and great sorrows. They are sinking under the load of responsibility to protect their children, wife and relatives. They do not see the shores during this struggle for survival. Kulasekhara points out that for those desperate chetanas, the boat known as Vishnu is the sole hope for escape from the torments of the ocean of Samsaaraa and to reach the kingdom of the Lord.
