At Harvard Divinity School in late October 1997, Andrew delivered this flawless teaching on the nature of wanting, the endless craving for material things, and its relationship to the spiritual life. The talk carefully describes the relationship between our most fundamental desire to have and possess for ourselves, the compelling excitement these desires elicit in us, and the enormous potential for suffering and confusion they engender when left unexamined in our lives. Andrew's words echo and renew timeless teachings on the causes of human suffering and the end of that suffering. The distinctions he makes are vital to any sincere inquiry into the core of human nature and the goal of spiritual attainment. From this vast perspective this deeply confusing subject can actually be seen with a clarity that has the power to liberate.
