Prernamurti Bharti shriji has given us the message to get rid of all sorrows and sufferings i.e to eradicate desires…

Freedom from desire is for the purpose of understanding the truth, not denying, but having greater access to joy and inner equilibrium.  The world cannot always give us fulfillment to our desires.  So, if we believe that our happiness comes from the world, we are deceived and our own belief denies us what is rightfully ours.  In that respect, mind is a brutal but effective teacher

As fire is obscured by smoke, as a looking glass by dust, as an embryo is enveloped by the womb, so it (wisdom) is covered by this (desire).
                                                                                                         —The Bhagavad Gita III:38

Also one becomes disillusioned when desires, fame and fortune do not truly offer the expected lasting happiness.  That is one reason why so many famous people overdose.

O Arjuna! the constant enemy of wise men is the unslakable flame of desire, by which wisdom is concealed.
                                                                                                         —The Bhagavad Gita III:39

The weight of fulfilling the immensity of their desires becomes too heavy.  They want more happiness then more then more and still, find themselves wanting more.  That is because their soul yearns for constant experiencing of its truth.  The mind, with its illusions that keeps joy at arms length, deprives one of that joy by sending one forever looking to fulfill yet another desire.  But its never enough…..ever….And when you are famous and wealthy and still ‘unhappy’, where do you turn for escape?

How to be free from root of sufferings (Desire) ??

The senses, mind, and intellect are said to be desire’s formidable stronghold; through these, desire deludes the embodied soul by eclipsing its wisdom.
Therefore, O Arjuna! first discipline the senses, then destroy desire, the sinful annihilator of wisdom and Self-realization.
                                                                                                   —The Bhagavad Gita III:40-41

God is Sufficient

One who is at peace in God is not tortured by unfulfilled earthly desires. No one can hurt him by thwarting him in some outward matter, because to him God is sufficient. Gods joyous presence is the only conditioning factor in his happiness. Each of you should try resolutely to meditate and to feel Gods presence, and see how quickly you will become aware of Gods favor.

Desire nothing.

The disciple of the Supremely Enlightened takes delight in the destruction of desire.

The man who has killed all desires…he indeed is exalted among men and relaxes in God.

It is not good conduct that puts you on the path to liberation, nor will ritual do it, nor book learning, nor seclusion and solitude, nor meditation. None of these alone can bring mastery or joy. It is desirelessness that does it.

The wise man…cuts all ties. He gives up all his desires. He resists all temptations. And he rises. And wherever he lives, in the city or the country, in the valley or in the hills, there is great joy. Even in the empty forest he finds joy, because he desires nothing.
