Craving causes Conflict
Buddha once said:
Truly, caused by craving for sense pleasure, conditioned by craving
pleasure, propelled by craving for sense pleasure,
wholly induced by yearning
pleasure, kings fight with kings,
princes with princes, priests with priests,
the mother quarrels with the son, the son with the mother,
the son, the son with the father; brother quarrels with brother, brother with sister,
sister with brother, and friend brawl with friend!
into conflict, quarrelling,
and fighting, they readily attack
each other with fists and weapons, thereby suffering
both pain and death!
Furthermore, caused by craving for
plain sense pleasure, conditioned
by urge for simple sense pleasure, propelled by desire for sense
pleasure, wholly induced
by craving for sense pleasure, burglars
into houses, rob, plunder, steal from friends,
commit highway robbery, and seduce the wives of others. Then the rulers have such people
and inflict upon
them various forms of punishment. Thereby they meet
or even death.
Such is the misery of craving for sense pleasure,
accumulation of pain and
this present life, caused, initiated,
prepared and entirely dependent upon
this evil yearning
for sense pleasure!
Finally: Beings engage in evil mental, verbal and bodily
behaviour; as a consequence of that, at breakup of the body, right after death,
into the downfall, and re-arise in a state of misery,
in an unhappy destination, even
abyss of one of the many inferno hells...
Such also is the misery of craving for sense
of suffering in the future life, entirely due to craving for low
created by craving for pleasure, caused by craving for pleasure,
dependent on this
malign sense pleasure craving.
