They just can't even hear / bear these most auspicious Parama Mangala shabdhas (sounds). They can't endure these types of most auspicious sounds of the Shankha, ghanta, jagata.  Whereas these sounds are very very much dear to our Bhagavan Sri Hari / Sri Rama / Sri Krishna and his Devatas (Demigods). We need to make Sri Hari / Sri Rama / Sri...
