【修持轨理 The Meditation Session】后时如何行者 What to do at the conclusion P4
他结果，我们碰到这种情况之下，哎呀，那好了，继续下去，他不是! 等到你发现了这个欢喜，你会觉得：「哎呀，这下对了！这下要修了。」 这个叫「欲修心」。欸，妙咧! 我们碰到这种欢喜的情况继续下去，他告诉我们怎么？停下来。那我们想想看，这个碰对了为什么会停下来? 大善知识的大善巧，真美！你碰对了叫你停下来，停下来是什么状态啊？你下来了以后你心里想：「这么好啊！」你虽然下来了，你一心一意一直想再去做那件事情，你相信不相信？

【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.】
For those who have practiced before, if you have seriously tried, you would have had that experience. Or something like this could occur during your prostrations to Buddha. Normally your thoughts run wild, but you get to a point where your mind becomes very peaceful when you are prostrating. Ah-ya, you would feel at that time, or perhaps unconsciously, a feeling of gratitude, or unconsciously a sense of joy. Even sometimes when you prostrate, without being aware of it, you would start to cry your heart out. Even though you may be crying hard, you feel joyful in your heart. This could happen with anything [you practice].
But then when we are in this situation, ah-ya, it is great and we want to continue. But that is not what he tells you to do here! When you discover this kind of joy, you will feel, "Ah-ya, I got it right! I am going to meditate now." That is the mindset of "still wanting to meditate." Eh, that is the marvelous part! We would ordinarily continue on when we have this joy. But what does he tell us? Stop. So let us think about this. Why would you stop when you get it right? That is the superbly skillful method of a great excellent teacher. That is beautiful! He tells you to stop when you get it right. What would it be like when you stop? Once you exit the session, you would think, "This was so great!" So even though you have ended the meditation, you wholeheartedly and continuously intend to get back to do it again. Do you believe it?
