According to Buddhist tradition are there different types of craving? It occurs to me that the following could all be described using the English word craving
- Being thirsty (for water)
- Really wanting a new car
- Wistfully missing a loved one when they are temporarily absent from your life
However they do feel like they are very different things. So are there categorisations of craving within Buddhist philosophy and if so how would my examples fit into those categories.
I'm interested in answers from any tradition but I suspect that there might be some kind of list of craving within something like the Abidharma
These are great answers so far but I wonder does anyone have anything to add on a more experiential basis perhaps referencing meditation practice.
