VÄsudeva, or Lord KášášŁáša, the Absolute Personality of Godhead, is the supreme controller of everything. There is no one in creation who is not afraid of the rage of the Almighty. Great asuras like RÄvaáša, HiraášyakaĹipu, Kaášsa, and others who were very powerful living entities were all killed by the Personality of Godhead. And the almighty VÄsudeva has empowered His name with the powers of His personal Self. Everything is related to Him, and everything has its identity in Him. It is stated herein that the name of KášášŁáša is feared even by fear personified. This indicates that the name of KášášŁáša is nondifferent from KášášŁáša. Therefore, the name of KášášŁáša is as powerful as Lord KášášŁáša Himself. There is no difference at all. Anyone, therefore, can take advantage of the holy names of Lord ĹrÄŤ KášášŁáša even in the midst of the greatest dangers. The transcendental name of KášášŁáša, even though uttered unconsciously or by force of circumstances, can help one obtain freedom from the hurdle of birth and death.
