【Meditation Session】What to do in between meditation sessions – How to practice diligently without sleeping at the wrong time and how to act properly at the time of sleep
Mindfulness: This arises from having heard, thought, and meditated on meaningful, virtuous teachings. Pursue this practice until you have fallen asleep. By this means, even when you are asleep, your mind will continue to engage the teachings, just as though you were not asleep.
What do you do with the mind? At that time, the second one, earlier it was the idea of illumination, secondly, it is about your mind. Normally when we fall asleep, we let it go and not think of anything. Now it is not like that. You have to continue to hear, think and meditate. You continue to contemplate, to think of the virtuous teachings we thought of during the day. Then, you continue to be mindful of that. If you can do this, eh, there is a state. If we can truly be like this, for us normally, we will not be able to fall asleep. If you lie down and think of things, you will not fall asleep, of course. However, it has a benefit. You might want to try it out. If you can truly think, think, think and think like this, in the end, you would still fall asleep. After fallen asleep, a wonderful state, the mindfulness remains and it is very clear. You all can go try it!
