(Group Learning Program) - (Chapter 16) - Craving is The Problem: What is The Solution?
The problem that Gotama Buddha discovered about the human mind is that it is constantly in a condition of craving and desire, also described as attachment. The mind constantly craves, desires and attaches to possessions, relationships, wealth, fame, occupations, etc. A craving, desire, or attachment is “a mental longing for something with a strong eagerness”.
The mind continuously and endlessly has “cravings”, “desires”, or “wants” and because we cannot ever fulfill our endless “wants” with the mind craving permanence, the mind is discontent caused by our own craving, desires, or attachments.
In this Podcast, David will help you understanding "The Problem" in the mind and discuss the solution to eliminate the discontent mind.
