Extirpation of desire
Desire, they say, is the seed of ceaseless birth For all things living at all times. Must you desire, desire freedom from birth. That comes only by desiring desirelessness. No greater fortune here than not to yearn, And none to excel it hereafter too! Purity is freedom from yearning And that comes of seeking Truth. Those are free who are free of yearning. Others, of all else free, remain un-free. If you love virtue, flee from desire; For desire is a great betrayer. When all deeds of desire are uprooted, Liberation comes as and when desired. Where there is no desire, there is no sorrow. Where there is, it comes over and above. When the misery of miseries called desire ends, The result is never-ending joy. The state of eternal bliss will result When desire that is insatiable is conquered.
