【修持轨理】后时如何行者

【若待稍固,时渐延长,于一切中,应离太急太缓加行过失。由此能令障碍减少,疲倦惛沉等亦当消灭。】


那是固了。这样呀!然后呢你延长那个时间,那个时候才是真正延长的时候,不是熬腿。
所以现在有很多人练不倒单,唉,我实在代他可惜,但是也无从劝起,没有办法的。在座的诸位也许已经有人信得过我这个话,因为前面已经学了这个教授相当多,如果说你们自己不管听也好,自己看下去,把那个奢摩他,毘钵舍那看完了,我不叫你们这样做,你也都不可能,你会很清楚、很明白的。什么是生起,然后什么是稳固,每一个地方的行相非常清楚。走进去每个地方都有次第,那个时候延长,对了!

【The Meditation Session】
【What to do at the conclusion】

【When your meditation has become somewhat stable, lengthen the session. In all the sessions make your practice free from the faults of being either too strict or excessively relaxed, and thereby sustain your meditation. In this way you will have few obstacles and will overcome problems such as overtiredness, laxity, and lethargy. 】

Then you are stable. That is how it is! At that time you can lengthen the duration. That is when you can actually lengthen the duration. It is not just about torturing your legs. So there are many who practice "meditation without normal sleeping", eh, I feel it is too bad for him. But there is no way for me to tell him and cannot help him. For those who are sitting here, perhaps some people here already believe what I have said so far, since we have learned quite a few instructions earlier. But if for yourself, whether you keep listening [to me], or if you read on your own, and read through [the teachings on] serenity and insight, then even if I tell you not to follow it, you would not give it up. You will understand it thoroughly and be very clear about it . What is generation and what is stabilization, you would know the subjective aspects [i.e. mental behavior] of every stage. When you enter at each stage, there is an order to follow. So at that point you lengthen [the session], then you would be right!
