712. Monkey Mind or Wild Buffalo Mind?

“දසබලයන්වහන්සේ නමැති ශෛලමය පර්වතයෙන් පැන නැඟී, අමා මහ නිවන නම් වූ මහා සාගරය අවසන් කොට ඇති, ආර්ය අෂ්ටාංගික මාර්ගය නම් වූ සිහිල් දිය දහරින් හෙබි, උතුම් ශ්‍රීමුඛ බුද්ධවචන ගංගාවෝ, ලෝ සතුන්ගේ සසර දුක් නිවාලමින්, බොහෝ කල් ගලා බස්නා සේක්වා!”

Q. I usually listen to Bana most of the time but if I talk to a friend, the conversation keeps coming up in my mind for few days I seek advice or reason for this way of thinking.

A. In addition to listening to Bana you also need to practice some meditation. Mind is an animal that can be trained. untrained mind wanders everywhere and causes lot of harm. Meditation is the way to train the mind so it behaves the way you want.

A. The Dhamma states that our minds are like monkeys. Always chattering (the internal dialogue) and always running about (going from one thought to another). So, in order to tame this monkey mind, we must meditate. That way we can control our mind and not let our mind control us.
I believe the Breath meditation is best for this task. But it's best if you receive guidance from a monk who is learned in meditation and it's techniques, and he will recommend the best type(s) of meditation for you.

A. Almost everyone tells you Meditate! Meditate!! Meditate!!! When you hear the word Meditate! Just look at your own mental-picture, there is every possibility that, it gives / shows you something like this – cross-legged seating and trying to focus on something or tottering for one-pointedness. Now, every chance to you give up Meditating or you get bored.

Of course, it is not the ONLY way of Meditating – practice Just A Word like Impermanence (Anicca), Suffering (Dukkha), or Soullessness (Anatta) and there are many more words available.

Whenever your mind wanders / running here and there / streaming to the past or future / fills with unnecessary thoughts, now it’s time to practice THE WORD.

As time passed by, The most important thing is whenever you practice the word in mind (you don’t need to utter it), make sure you practice with inherited meaning of the word, the literal meaning, along with the mental picture (that the word carrying), if you can.

T. Whatever you do, especially in meditation, just do not panic, just DO NOT RUSH!

Haste makes Waste
More haste more Waste
The more haste The less speed
