Buddhism uses the phrase 'monkey mind' to describe the constant unsettled, unpredictable and unsophisticated moving of the mind. It is symbolized by a monkey inside a room with several windows. One Chinese Buddhist master explained monkey mind saying: "Imagine there is a room with six windows. In the room is a monkey. Someone calls at one widow 'monkey, monkey' and he runs to that window. Then a second person calls from another window 'monkey, monkey' and again he runs to that window. On and on it goes."
