Unsatisfied desire for existence and sensual pleasures is the cause of rebirth.

What is the cause of rebirth?

The Buddha taught that ignorance produces desires.

Unsatisfied desire is the cause of rebirth.

When all unsatisfied desire is extinguished, then rebirth ceases.

To stop rebirth is to extinguish all desires.

To extinguish desire, it is necessary to destroy ignorance.

When ignorance is destroyed, the worthlessness of every such rebirth, is perceived, as well as the paramount need to adopt a course of life by which the desire for such repeated births can be abolished.
