Panacea , humility and vastness of life

No single domain/field of activity can claim superior importance to the exclusion of all the rest.

This assumption that emanates either out of love for that particular domain or over simplification of the wholeness of life into a single domain thinking that as a result solutions to all aspects of life can be found in or through that domain and fullness of life can be explained through such narrow slots.

Often such assumptions also pop up due to the excessive pride and ego of those in some fields.

विद्या ददाति विनयं विनयाद्याति पात्रताम् 
पात्रत्वाद्धनमाप्नोति धनाद्धर्मं ततः सुखम्

(true/complete) knowledge gives discipline[humility], from discipline [humility] comes worthiness, from worthiness one gets wealth, from wealth (one does) good deeds, from that (comes) joy.

I have written many blog posts dispelling such perspectives because we can neither deny nor defy the importance of anything or anyone.
