【The Meditation Session】
【What to do in between meditation sessions】
What should you do? You must keep your mindfulness and vigilance, and not let it go. So he says if you do "not continue to rely on mindfulness and vigilance", and let it go, in this way, your progress will be very small, very small! So when someone truly meditates, there is this condition - you need to focus your entire attention to meditate [during the actual meditation session], and you are still meditating after ending the session. But what is the difference between the two states? We should know, when you are meditating, you devote your entire attention, that is when you devote all your energy. So now we certainly need to adjust and harmonize between being tight and loose. So after you end the session, you need to relax your body and mind for a while, but not to completely let it go.
