The Mind is Like a Loud Truck

While I was chanting the other day, a truck drove by that was so loud that I couldn’t even hear myself chant. As it got further away I could again hear the mantra coming out of my mouth. As this was happening I immediately thought that the truck is exactly like the mind. Sometimes the mind is so loud that I can’t even hear myself chant. It just takes over and the maha mantra gets drowned out by the volume of my mind. When I think of...
