Hungry Ghosts Feasting on Shit


Media_http3bpblogspot_qxkmg

Characterised by greed, insatiable cravings, addictions: “I want this, I need this, I have to have this”.

The torture of the hungry ghost is not so much the frustration of not being able to get what he wants; it is his clinging to those things he mistakenly thinks will bring satisfaction and relief.

Think Gollum from “The Lord of the Rings.”
