We all are slaves of desires. We employ every means to fulfill them. The desires are the root cause of all our banes. There is an endless list of desires with everyone of us. Some most common ones are money, comforts, good health, well being of children, easy life in office with work output to effort very large etc etc.
Man goes to temples, gurudwaras, Masjids, Churches, Synagogues, Dargahs and what not and always pesters the God incharges there to fulfill his desires. When one desire gets fulfilled, the list does not diminish but another one is added immediately.
But as we are aware that resources in the world are limited and everyone cannot hope to fulfill the desires. This causes the heart burning, depression, ill health and all the troubles. He sees to it and tries his best that if it is not possible to fulfill his desires, others also do not get their desires fulfilled.
Only one may be out of millions goes to God for killing his desires and that man becomes Mahapurush, the blessed person, above the materialistic pleasures. He becomes Mohammad, Nanak, Jesus and the like.
