【修持轨理 The Meditation Session】前行 Preparation P3

【修持轨理】

【初加行法有六,乃是金洲大师传记。】
这个有六个。下面这句话记住哦!凡是这个地方,表示我们现在这个地方的教授有圆满传承,绝对不是现在我们乱来的。同时,我们听见了这个以后,要晓得,说有的人告诉你这样,有的人告诉你那样,你看看他告诉你的传承如何。所以我当年去学的时候,刚开始的讲一般道理,他没有;正规讲的时候,这个老师一定说的,我这个师承哪里来的,说得很清楚,说我的老师谁,老师的老师谁,然后追溯上去的时候,阿底峡尊者、什么,上面大家晓得就不谈了。这个地方你别小看他一句话! 所以以后我们真正学的时候,你了解一点普通知识没关系,反正随便谈谈,你要真正地摸进去的时候,这个是非常重要的。

【The Meditation Session】

【The six aspects of preparation are the activities of Ser-ling-ba】

Now there are six aspects. Remember the phrase that comes after! Whenever this is indicated, it shows that our instructions here come from a perfect lineage. We are absolutely not being reckless here. At the same time, after we hear this, we should know that when you hear some people tell you this and others tell you that, you should examine where the lineage of his instructions come from. So back in the times when I learned the teachings, when they were teaching common knowledge [of Buddhism], it [the lineage] was not given. But when Buddhism was being taught in a formal manner, the teacher would always disclose where the lineage of the instruction came from. It would be explained very clearly, such as whom my teacher was, and who was the teacher of the teacher, and then continuing upward until say Je Atisha. Beyond that, since everyone knows where it came from, there is no need to mention further. Do not belittle that one phrase! Thus, when we truly want to learn later, if you just want to understand a little common knowledge, then it is fine, it is just a casual discussion. But if it is your genuine wish to advance [in the teachings], this is very important.
