My mind and senses became an unrelenting adversary that I would do battle with every time I meditated, and guess who won all the battles? This scenario reminds me of a story my meditation teacher use to tell. So, what to do about the mind when we first begin establishing a meditation practice?

Sit in a quiet place, cue all the environmental messages to put yourself in a meditative state, and try not to think about monkeys. Don't think about monkey puzzle trees, or monkey nuts, if that's what peanuts are called where you live. Don't think about monkey bars. Don't think about the monkeys on the streets of Lopburi, Thailand , raiding the backpacks of tourists who can't help getting a little too close, or about the monkey house at the zoo, or sea monkeys languishing in the aquarium. Have you come up with some of your own ways not to think about monkeys yet?
The form of the film is unusual: all dialogues are in verse accompanied by a strict musical rhythm. The creators of the film define its genre as a tragic farce. Perceiving this task as the first step in his financial career, Vova Smorodin develops the magic-touch of enterprise. If he needs to drain and repair the selected basement, he may recall an entire fire brigade from a fire emergency, or a company of soldiers from a mission. After taking over an empty attic for his office, Vova discovers there three Bohemian artists who have escaped from a mental hospital: the suicidal model Dasha Katerina Ksenyeva , the alcoholic artist Gena Aleksei Devotchenko and the mute Buddhist known by the nickname Khu-Pun' Anvar Libabov. This meeting becomes a turning point in Vova's previously confident life.
