Buddhism does not advocate that people should forsake their desires completely; it advises people to follow the middle path. We shouldn’t allow our desires to become rampant, but we also have to live with the fact that we do have desires. Therefore, we have to use our wisdom to guide us so that we only follow positive desires and not the negative ones.
