How to Overcome Fear

At one time my friend was living near boudhanath in Nepal in Asia country, in that wasn’t Himalayan valley he meditated in a grove of flowering tress’s suddenly, stomping footers shook me out of my dreamy state and drew my attention to an enormous European tourist marching through the field carrying a large bag of groceries, well one six feet tall, blonde with huge muscle bulging from beneath his T-shirt he had the physique of a champion body builder, then jumping out from the forest a gang of little brown monkeys surrounded him.

Although each monkeys was only a fraction of his size, they knew how to find his weakest point and attack, they snarled and bared their teeth threatening him with intimidating gestures, while holding the groceries in one of his massive arms, he hoisted large rock in the other hand whooping like a warrior he threatened to pulverize the little bandits, but the monkeys were unfazed and the only snarled louder, they took small leaps toward their target, succeeding in attacking his mind.


At that point I could not believe what I saw paralyzed with fright, the man trembled like scared little child. Finally one of the little monkeys stalked right up to him and seized the grocery bag from his hands. He did not even resist. While the monkeys clustered around the bag to devour the groceries, they paid him no heed.

Reduced to them to a bundle of nerves he quietly slipped away, secondly a little a skinny little Nepalese boy of about 8 years old appeared on the scene. The gang of monkeys had just began feasting on their booty, but stirred with apprehension upon seeing the tinny boy.

The child skipped toward them with a small stone in his hand.


The monkeys screeched: terror in their eyes, suddenly they abandoned the food and fled in all direction; the little boy collected up the groceries and sat down to dine.


Meanwhile the monkeys anxiously watched from distance, I was amazed.


What had just happened here? That playful boy was hardly the weight of one bicep of that herculean European. The Monkeys were unfazed by the threat of the giant because they sense fear in his mind, but they fear the child because he had no fear of them.


We are vulnerable to defeat when our minds succumb to fear.


The foreigner was unfamiliar with monkeys, but the Nepalese child had lived around monkeys all his life.


So we fear what we do not know, to conquer fear we need purify our mind through realized knowledge.
