【The Meditation Session - What to do in between meditation sessions】
【Restraining the sensory faculties – how to restrain the sensory faculties – guarding the sensory faculties.】
【"Take note of" refers to perceiving and paying attention to the intentional or unintentional appearance of sensory objects such as forms that you should not look at. 】
“Take note of” means, there! It means that with regards to what we should not look at, when it appears, we would feel, aiya, this thing is very good. Then you go ahead and take a look, this act is called “take note of”. With regards to this act – we don’t want it, eliminate it! Next, it is about imagining.
【"Imagining" can refer to the mental consciousness's apprehension of sensory objects that produces attachment, hostility, and ignorance, after the six consciousnesses have perceived them. It can also refer to hearing about these sensory objects from others and then imagining them despite never having perceived them.】
What about “imagining”? It is after you have taken note of it, you have seen it, and you keep thinking of it and elicits your attachment and desire towards this object, like this. At this moment in your mind, this object has already passed, it is no longer in front of you. This must be restrained, restrain this, restrain this.
