This is a fascinating, in-depth discussion about the causes of craving, desire and addiction as well as approaches for intervention and prevention. The conference took place in India from October 28 to November 1, 2013 and was the 27th in the Mind and Life conference series. All of us experience some form of these powerful emotions – whether it’s for our electronic devices, caffeine, drugs, tobacco, even sleep. His Holiness asks many insightful questions and offers his perspective on the nature of these afflictions. Not to be missed!
