importance of desire lessness?


The importance of being without desire is very high. It is the key to achieving freedom from the cycle of birth and death. There is nothing more excellent than being free from desire in this world or even in the afterlife. Having a pure mind means being free from desire, and this is the result of loving truth. Those who are without desire do not experience sorrow, but those who have desire will experience more and more sorrow. Desire is the seed that produces unending births for all creatures. If a person cuts off all desire, they will achieve immortality. It is important to watch out for desire because it can deceive and destroy a person. The lowly enjoy more happiness than those who know what is good because they are not troubled by anxiety about what is good.
