It pertains to the beginning of the universe when truth about five elements of  nature I e. Earth, Space, Air, Fire and Water comprising the universe was accepted and acknowledged. All the five elements living in harmony with one another formed a calm, peaceful universe. Then the entry of an element alien to them in their lives disrupted their harmony . That alien element was pride. Taking pride in the self they started challenging the importance of others.


The Earth said arrogantly," I am the reason for your existence. All of you are living on me. You are putting your existence in danger by challenging my power. I can throw all of you out if I want so." 

Irritated on arrogancy of the Earth, the Space bursted, "All of you are under my shelter. I have provided protection to all of you against any disaster. If I want I can withdraw my cover and expose all of you to the problems around and make you shelterless."

The Air didn't want to be left out of this flaunting of self importance. It blurted out," Don't jump with your false ego in front of me. All of you are alive and breathing because of me. I can throw all of you out of your roots if I desire so. You exist because of my existence."

Listening to all of them, the Fire flared up,"My heat is life-saver for all of you. My heat has embraced all of you cosily. I provide light in your lives otherwise all of you would have been lost in chilled, cold darkness".

Hitherto silent Water not to be left back, roared," All of you have seen my calm face only till now. I have kept all you safe and secure in my life-giving calm nectar. Don't provoke me to adopt destructive way to drown all of you in just a moment."

Immersed in their false ego, hitherto calm and peaceful all the five elements of nature started asserting their supremacy on one another by challenging one another's power. The result was a total chaos in the Universe. The Earth shook itself in such a way that every thing turned turtle and fell flat, defeated badly. The Space disappeared in such a way that all of them were exposed to unseen problems. The raging Air was in full blast causing havoc all around. Ferocious Fire engulfed everything destroying whatever came its way. The angry Water flooded limitlessly all around. Trying to assert their authority on one another by destruction, each one of them lost its existence. It was a catastrophic situation. Feeling the loss of their existence, they recognised the evil, useless presence of alien element Pride who was laughing loudly at their destruction. Unitedly they threw it out of them. Every thing became normal the moment pride was thrown out. Ashamed of their stupid, ignorant and destructive behaviour Earth, Space, Air, Fire and Water again accepted and acknowledged the fact every body's existence is equally important and existence of each one's existence is safe and secure in co-existence.
