【修持轨理】后时如何行者

【有欲修心,即便截止,则于后次心欲趣入。若不尔者,见座位时,即觉发呕。】
这个文字先不解释,我把那个内容说一下,你们自已一看那个文字就懂了。说你假定得到了正确的指导以后,你上去坐的时候,这个行相就很清楚,哦,你晓得做些什么。然后呢因为行相很清楚,做对了你会很欢喜。我们做任何事情都是这样的,你去跟他学,它做对了你觉得很欢喜,对不对?然后呢,开始摸的时侯,唉呀,你摸来摸去,就是摸不到这个窍门,到后来你摸到了,哎呀!心里好欢喜呀!那时候你就欢喜地觉得:「啊,对了,对了!」譬如说你念佛,平常你就是胡思乱想,到那个时侯一下这个佛号提起了,哎呀,你觉得欢喜呀!

【The Meditation Session】

【What to do at the conclusion】

【If you end your session while still wanting to meditate, you will be eager to reenter each future session. Otherwise, it is said that you will feel nauseous when you see the cushion. 】

We will not explain the text here first. Let me explain the meaning of it. Then you can read the text and understand it yourself. It says if you have gotten the correct instruction, then when you enter the session, you will be very clear of the subjective aspects [i.e. our mental actions/behavior]. Oh, you will know what you should do. Then, because you know the subjective aspects very well and when you have done it correctly, you will be joyful. It is the same with doing anything else. When you go and learn from someone, and when you do it correctly, you will feel happy, isn't it so? When you first try to figure things out, ah-ya, you try this and that, but you just cannot figure out the technique. Then later when you finally figured it out, ah! You are filled with joy! Then you will be so happy and feel this way, "Ah, this is right. This is right!" For example, if you recite the Buddha's name, normally your thoughts run wild with all sorts of ideas. But, you will get to a point where you can maintain recitation of the Buddha's name in your mind, ah! You will feel so happy!
