Monkey Minds




Just outside of Dhamma Nana Dhaja in Monywa, the meditation center in the tradition of Sayagyi U Goenka and named after the Pali words of Ledi Sayadaw's name, it was considered beneficial to build a large monkey cage, so some yogis may wish to bring banana dana. Strangely, the cage seems to be monkey-optional, as the primates wander back and forth between the bars freely, so those with “monkey phobia” may wish to avoid the area.
