Gradual Changes

“By degrees a person should become free of unwholesome and unnatural habits; similarly, one should try to develop wholesome natural habits. The way of doing this is to replace the unnatural with the natural. If withdrawal is gradual, addiction does not reappear; wholesome habits, gradually acquired, become firmly implanted.” -Charaka Samhita


Tantra advises one to transform their desires rather than to suppress them. By acquiring deeper knowledge of the Self one can discern honestly whether their desires are from healthy physiological urges or an indulgence in the unnatural urges of body and mind. Desires vary based on intention; intention for enjoyment as a gateway to spiritual attainment is different than a desire blindly repeated through attachment.
