When were constantly exposed to evil, we dont
realize the damage it does. The purpose of these
monkeys is to help us let go of the evil we wish
to beat. Evil is like poison. Whatever it comes
in contact with, it wrecks. Besides, what one
exposes oneself to, one is bound to attract more.
To protect ourselves, we must see no evil, hear
no evil, speak no evil.
See No Evil The first monkey urges us to not let
evil enter into our system through sight.
Whenever we witness violence, it causes us to act
more violently. When we see evil, we
internalize it. It becomes a part of us, wreaking
havoc on our bodies and minds. Hear No
Evil Ketan, the second monkey urges us to rely
on our own senses and experiences. If we hear
evil, we tend to react. We will always find
people who rebuke us, hurt our sentiments and
sensitivity. It is necessary to ignore such
people, and not let evil in. Speak No Evil The
third monkey reminds us that our words should
never hurt the sentiments of others. He implores
us to always speak with grace and great
discretion. We must choose to avoid spiteful
words words that lack empathy. The world today
finds it difficult to practise this mantra. Only
after we truly adopt it, we can begin to
understand its value. The bottomline is To live
in peace, we must first cleanse our souls. If we
wish for harmony in our lives, we must start with
our habits. As they say, Hear all, see all and
speak out for freedom and liberty, if you want to
live in peace. Also Read Take the Lead- A step
