Anyone who wishes to protect their physical body from harm must tame their wild mind

Our body, speech, and mind are all interlinked, and without the control of our mind, our body cannot act. Thus, anyone who wishes to protect their physical body from harm must tame their wild mind, which is generally known in Buddhism as "the wild monkey.” Taming our mind is one of the most important things for us to do because happiness or suffering is the direct result of our mind. We cannot afford to let our mind run too free because the outcome could be unpredictable. But we also can’t imprison our mind, which may give rise to stress and loneliness. We just have to be wise enough to handle the mind delicately, like a mother holding a little baby.
