I met up with this group of lovely monkeys during our visit to Mahakala (Dungeswari) Cave, Bodhgaya.
The distance from Bodhgaya to Mahakala cave is 12 km.
Initially as the prince Gautama Siddhartha left his princely life in search of truth and peace by leading a life of fasting and asceticism, he meditated in caves. It was Mahakala (Dungeswari) cave where he realized that fasting and humiliating the flesh will not bring him enlightenment or divine knowledge.
The monkey’s behavior is like human, they love the food we love, they love their kids, they used hand to eat, they can run, sit, stand, they love oranges, biscuits….….but only THEY CAN’T talk to us.
It reminded me on “All living creatures have the equal right as human, we can’t simply kill them.”.
Once you have the beautiful thought of not killing, you are able to be “Compassionate to others.”慈悲
