can one eeally say that even a spark of desire is a very great evil? there are many kinds of desires which are accompanied with many kinds of intentions. does the foregoing statement then not suggest that the desire to help is evil? which I think it is not. if I were to have no desires or intentions at all then how could I have feelings? how could one then feel love, friendship, kindness and all the things like those that I consider virtues?
