About Attachment

From a Dharma perspective, attachment is a mental state characterized by clinging and craving for people, objects, or experiences, driven by a desire for pleasure or security. It leads to suffering as it creates a dependency on external conditions for happiness, which are inherently impermanent and unsatisfactory. Attachment distorts perception, fuels negative emotions like greed and jealousy, and hinders spiritual growth by maintaining the illusion of a separate self, obstructing the path to true liberation and inner peace.
