Tora turns the fires of physical passion into holy prayers.

As you know water cools off the fire. As it absorbs the heat it turns into steam and rises. Tora likewise confronts lusts absorbs their heat and turns into prayer.

If there is enough tora, the fire is put out.

If the tora is lacking (g-d forbid) it becomes part of the fire.

Mfoursamim cause fires to break out, like what happened in Breslev forcing Rabbenu to "run for shelter" to a town of Chillonim (non-religious jews). Make sure you tora out-weighs your passions and those of the people you are trying to mitkarev (bring to the Tzaddik) or you might become an involontary PIRO-man!
