Content / Description

Investigation of body is crucial for cutting down sexual desire (ie raga tanha) It is because of raga tanha that we are born again and again. Raga tanha can be manifested in many ways not just sexual desire – love for power or wealth is also a form of raga tanha. Love to express oneself be it bodily or speech is also another manifestation of raga tanha.
