Paksi refers to "birds" and represents a kind of pain, according to the VISNU Purana, " the wise man gets the three types of worldly pain (inseparable-occasional-superhuman) or a mental and physical condition and as such has investigated true wisdom and has obtained a detachment of human objects, the Final Solution ".
