8 CRAVING
Feeling condenses into a Craving that is hard to satisfy.
THE LEVEL OF ORDINARY
Attachment to Feeling, positive or negative, turns into the longing, yearning and greed of Craving. Craving can manipulate judgement and overwhelm common sense.
THE LEVEL OF DEEPER UNDERSTANDING
The Buddha called Craving a ‘baited hook’ as the gratification it demands is insatiable.
The fire of Craving will burn as long as delusion fuels it.
THE LEVEL OF ULTIMATE WISDOM
The Buddha called Craving the requisite condition for conflicts, quarrels, disputes and unskilled
behaviour. Craving binds us to Samsara.
