Question: Where Does Desire Come From?

Dear Gurudeva,

Please accept my most humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada, Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga.

Could you kindly clarify one very basic question:

In the conditioned state, does desire originate from the mind or from the soul?

Hare Krishna,

Your menial servant,

Answer: It Originates in the Pure Soul

Desire originates in the pure soul, but it becomes perverted with lust, anger, greed, madness, illusion, and envy when it is manifested through a materialistic mind. It is something like pure white light being transformed into colored light when in shines through colored glass. And that same desire, when offered in the service of Lord Krishna, regains its original pure nature.
