【修持轨理】正行 - 总共修法

眼前得不到还是小事,还有一个大毛病,这个毛病可怕!
【若从最初令成恶习,则终生善行,悉成过失。】

你一开头养成功了这个习惯,这个是什么习惯? 恶习惯。下面的恶习惯改不过来,尽管你的发心是好的,你希望是好的,但是一点结果都没有,一生就这样地空过——「终生善行,悉成过失。」都是错的!这个地方只告诉我们一生,究实说起来,这个一生下面又一生,下面又一生,你如果这个地方不改过的话,它生生世世继续下去。在这一点也容或我们怀疑,我现在可以当下指出来这个情况。

【The Meditation Session】【Actual session - How to sustain the meditation in general】

Not getting what you want now is still a small matter.  There is another big problem, this problem is very frightening!【If you have made this a habit from the start, the virtuous practice of your whole lifetime will be flawed. 】

If you have developed this habit from the beginning, what kind of habit is this? A bad habit. If you do not correct this bad habit, even though your motivation is excellent, what you wish for is excellent, there will be no results, this life would be wasted -- 【the virtuous practice of your whole lifetime will be flawed. 】 It is all wrong! The text here just tells us about this lifetime, but realistically, there is another life after this, then another life. If you do not correct it here, it will carry on life after life. On this point, perhaps we would have some doubts. I can show you this immediately.
