Buddha’s concept: Buddha said that desire is the cause for all worldly sorrows. Did he mean we should never have any desires at all? It can’t be; Buddha himself travelled extensively to many villages in India to teach people the philosophy of life and acquire wisdom. He spent almost 40 years teaching people the truth of life soon after he had acquired spiritual wisdom under the famous Bodhi tree. Had he not had that strong DESIRE to get the people enlightened of life’s philosophy? So what he probably would have meant was the bad desires such as the desire to get sensual pleasures and the selfish desires. Good desires on the other hand are good for anyone.
