【Meditation Session - What to do in between meditation sessions】- restrain the sensory faculties – with which you restrain the sensory faculties - restrain them with a constant maintenance of your mindfulness
【With respect to these two, the first, maintaining your mindfulness, means that you practice your mindfulness repeatedly without forgetting the teachings about restraining the sensory faculties as well as the other three preconditions. 】
What we need to restrain are the six sensory faculties. What do you use to restrain it? With the Dharma Jewel, you use it to restrain your six sensory faculties. With regard to this Dharma Jewel, you continuously train and not forget about it, not forget about it. Actually for true meditation, this is it. It is the most effective jewel, your tool, your weapon to restrain against your three poisons. If you lost your weapon, how do you restrain? This is the first one. Why should you "repeatedly" practice? With this weapon that you are using, you must handle it well, know how to handle it, must be familiar with it. Once you are familiar with it, then at all times and places, eh, when the enemy comes, you can quickly take out your weapon to fight it.
