The 3 kinds of Craving


1:  There is craving for Sensing forms, sounds, smells, tastes, touches, ideas, thoughts and mental objects & states! (This is Kāma-Tanhā)...

2:  There is craving for Becoming this or that like rich, healthy, famous, beautiful, respected, successful & adored etc. (This is Bhava-Tanhā)...

3:  There is craving for Non-Becoming this or that like poor, sick, dead, ignored, disregarded, ugly, failed & despised. (This is Vibhava-Tanhā)...

~ The Buddha ~ [ DN 22]
