What is the reason for attachment ?try to escape dukkha ?

Postby purple planet » Wed Jan 22, 2014 3:40 pm

What is the reason for attachment ? is it to try to escape dukkha ?

do we eat to escape dealing with reality ? sleep to escape reality (reality = dukkha) ? listen to music to escape reality ?

and if its not the reason than why do we attach to things ?

ok good posting thanks that answers my question - i forgot completely about dependent origination - guess i got some reading to do :reading:

But i guess what i should have asked is :

when i have have some work to do which i dont like or is very hard to do - i start to get hungry and sleepy and want to listen to music - and do everything to avoid it -

how is this explainable in buddhism ? what is the reason for this ?

:goodpost:
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

And what is right speech? Abstaining from lying, from divisive speech, from abusive speech, & from idle chatter: This is called right speech.
