What exactly is the anatomy of a Desire and why does it have such a potent effect on our psyche and life?
Is it a thought of wanting something we don't have, but then we have so many thoughts about so many things? Is it a feeling of missing something or something being wrong in the present moment, but then we have so many other feelings? Is it a mental reaction, or perception of thought and feeling? Is it some mental energy illumined by consciousness? Or is it will want?
The Buddha went as far as saying, taṇhā ("craving, desire or attachment") is the cause of suffering. I want to understand what is this as a phenomenon?
