【修持轨理】正行 - 总共修法

【此修即是,为令其心,随自自在,堪如所欲,住善所缘。】

它因为错的,所以你要修改它。修改它什么啊?使得这个心识,能够听我自己招呼,像我所希望的,「堪」是能够,能够像我所希望的。希望什么啊?「住善所缘」,简单极了,就是这个。你为什么要使它「住善所缘」啊?因为你缘在善的上头的话,就感得善果报。真正说起来,修学佛法的的确确是世间所有人的共同目标。大家总觉得:「哎呀!你们这些迷信。」说这个话的人,这些人糊涂,大糊涂!请问你不妨问他,你在这里忙干什么啊?他要求快乐,怎么快乐?喏!这个地方告诉你快乐。这个是真正了解了没有一个人例外的,他一定选这一条路——修学佛法,这样。所以说佛法的的确确是天下最伟大的教育,而且也是唯一正确的教育,就在佛法当中,其他地方没有了。告诉你怎么得到快乐,告诉你怎么去掉痛苦嘛,这不是世间所有的人共同的嘛!岂但是人,所有的有情。

【Meditation Session】【Actual Session – How to sustain the meditation in general】

【Thus, meditation aims to bring this mind, which gives rise to all faults and flaws, under control and then it aims to make it serviceable. Serviceability means that you can direct your mind as your wish toward a virtuous object of meditation.】

Because it is wrong so you have to meditate and correct it. What do you correct? You want to make the conscious mind listen to you and do what you would like it to do. "Serviceable" means it is capable, capable of doing what I wish it to do. What do I wish for? "You can direct your mind as you wish toward a virtuous object of meditation." It is extremely simple. It is just this. Why do you want to "direct your mind as you wish toward a virtuous object of meditation."? This is because if you can focus on the virtuous objects, you will then experience the virtuous effects. Honestly speaking, training in Buddhism should indeed be a common goal for every single person in the mundane world. There are people who would always feel this way, "Ah-ya! You are being superstitious." People who say this are muddleheaded, extremely muddle-headed! You might want to ask him, “what are you busy with?” He is pursuing happiness. How do you become happy? Here! This place tells you how to be happy. After a person truly realizes this, without any exception, he will certainly choose this path – to learn Buddhism. Like that. Therefore Buddhism is indeed the greatest education in the world. And it is the only correct education. This only exists in Buddhism and nowhere else. It tells you how to gain happiness and how to eliminate sufferings. This is commonly pursued by everyone in the world! Not only humans pursue it, it is the same for all sentient beings.
