Taming Our Monkey Mind
Insight, Detachment, IdentityeBook - 1994
In Taming Our Monkey Mind, Phyllis Krystal explains how we often allow ourselves to get trapped by our desires. She equates this behavior to the monkey jar or gourd. The fistful of candy is too big to go through the small opening and he can't run from the hunters because his fist is stuck in the jar. Impulsive, curious, impatient, and driven by its senses, the monkey serves to illustrate how the undisciplined mind's attachments can become a prison. By taming our monkey mind-overcoming our greed and desire-we find the way to free ourselves from the material work so we can enter the world of the Divine. Phyllis Krystal shares Sai Baba's insights along with her own growth techniques in this exciting and very practical book.
