In his teachings, Buddha said that “the cause of all suffering in the world is comprised of three things: greed, hate, and illusion.” In such scenario, greed is at the forefront, yet greed can be found anywhere on the planet. Anger arises from the word “greed,” which causes individuals to become uneducated and dark, resulting in the creation of negative karma.
Graciousness is defined as an infatuation with, desire for, or passion for something in Buddhism. It is the five human requirements (money, form, beauty, exterior appearance), renown (fame, good reputation), food (feeding), and sleep) that are at the heart of the greedy person’s motivation.
Individuals will become greedy when their want for one of these items exceeds the typical level of desire, and this will be shown via their behaviors and speech.
Greed may be classified into three categories:
Greed for riches is defined as a desire for material possessions such as money, homes, and automobiles.
Greed for lust: When it comes to sexual life, the desire for beauty is often focused on the “body.”
Greed for Notoriety, Power, and Status: The desire for notoriety, power, and status.
The Buddha’s teaching on greed, on the other hand, asserts that greed is not inherent in human nature. Human nature, on the whole, is a reliable indication. Humans are born as pure as white paper, with a heart that is both pure and loving fireboy and watergirl. Throughout the years, greed develops via the mulberry pools that each individual comes into contact with. People who are unable to control their excessive desire for wealth. Greed continues to increase, and it is this growth that leads to bad behaviors. ‘The higher the greed, the greater the dissipation of virtue,’ according to the Buddha. Why? Greed is often connected with the negative. People who are hungry in order to get what they want are destined to commit evil in order to fulfill their desires.
