Taming the Monkey Mind
In this Satsang, Swami Satchidananda answers questions relating to the monkey mind: “The mind is always moving, changing. It is a wild monkey. And not only a wild monkey, but a drunken monkey that has been bitten by a scorpion. How on earth are you going to quiet the mind?” So, he speaks about various strategies including building a strong meditation practice, developing the “witness” awareness and how to find the happiness within. Sri Gurudev also addresses at length about the nature of the mind, “Each mind is different from the other; there are no two similar minds in the entire universe. Everything is different, there are no duplicates.” He explains the underlying unity within the diversity in nature, in religion, and in ultimate truth. This DVD captures the spontaneity and energy of a public talk providing a beautiful opportunity to sit with Sri Gurudev and be guided by his vast wisdom.
