Desire is the defining feature of all living beings.
When it links up with any sense organ, it becomes excitable and passionate.
It is essential for a social being to exercise control over such excitement.
It is even more important for a spiritual practitioner.
A very helpful suggestion on how to control passions is given in the Dasavekalik:

Na me chiram dukhaminam bhavissayi
Asasya bhogapivasa jantunon na che sarirena imena vessayi avissayi jiviyapajjven me

When passions are aroused, the spiritual practitioner should remember it will not last till eternity.
Desire rises like a wave but falls too.
So, I will not succumb to the passions of desire.
