” Human desires are endless. It is like the thirst of a man who drinks salt water: he gets no satisfaction and his thirst is only increased.”
BUKKYO DENDO KYOKAI
The Teaching of Buddha
Hermit Poet’s Comments: When approaching desire in life, I believe in finding a middle ground. I do not live with only a begging bowl and a robe. I enjoy music and reading books as well as other hobbies. Not everyone in today’s society can live in a cave and meditate all day. Likewise, as long as the ‘wants’ are kept in check and do not control our life, then a moderate lifestyle can bring contentment and happiness. It is up to the individual on how much is healthy.
