ŚB 1.7.20

अथोपस्पृश्य सलिलं सन्दधे तत्समाहित: ।
अजानन्नपि संहारं प्राणकृच्छ्र उपस्थिते ॥ २० ॥
athopaspṛśya salilaṁ
sandadhe tat samāhitaḥ
ajānann api saṁhāraṁ
prāṇa-kṛcchra upasthite


atha — thus; upaspṛśya — touching in sanctity; salilam — water; sandadhe — chanted the hymns; tat — that; samāhitaḥ — being in concentration; ajānan — without knowing; api — although; saṁhāram — withdrawal; prāṇakṛcchre — life being put in danger; upasthite — being placed in such a position.

The subtle forms of material activities are finer than grosser methods of material manipulation. Such subtle forms of material activities are effected through purification of sound. The same method is adopted here by chanting hymns to act as nuclear weapons.
