3 Wise Monkeys

‘See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil’ is the message of the 3 Wise Monkeys.
However it does not apply to monkeys. This wisdom refers to the intellect, the ‘buddhi’ of human beings.

The intellect is that which has the capacity to understand, discern, calculate and judge. It is on the basis of the intellect that we decide what we will and will not do. Information comes in from the outside world through the physical organs: the eyes, the ears and the mouth. This then influences the decisions that the intellect makes.

Information can be subjective and ever-changing. What is truth today may be false tomorrow. If I make decisions based on uncertain truths, jumping from one branch to another, chasing one thing or another, then what will that make me?

When the intellect has lost it’s ability to use the wisdom within and is driven through the sense organs, this results in a ‘monkey’ intellect.

Stop! Stop! Stop! – Be Wise.

Om Shanti
