Some young people of today became slaves of sensual pleasures which ruin their future. They want to succeed in life, to be wealthy, to be appraised and to be famous. But they didn’t accomplish their destination due to many obstacles in which sensual pleasures include.
They would feel bored to work overtime, but active the whole night in club, bored to attend parents but having a lot of time and money for love, busy to go monastery, but easy to hang out with friends,and find difficult to learn teaching of Buddha, Dhamma, but happy to sing music in karaoke, hard to have strong concentration for goal of life, but always concentrate and active to wake and watch European football match at mid night. Young people are really going to be the slaves of sensual pleasures. They are unable to see the impending sufferings.
That’s why our country are always late in comparing with other counties , which are full of active and genetic communities. I don’t mean young people not to get it. You can have it as long as you know your limit and as long as you can control yourself. But sensual pleasures are likes salty water; you drink it again and again and become more and more thirsty. Your desires will never be ended.
