【修持轨理 The Meditation Session】未修中间如何行者 What to do in between meditation sessions P6

【修持轨理 - 未修中间如何行者】

【故亦有于所缘行相净修其心,及律仪戒,积集资粮三法之上,名为三合而引导者。】

所以也有人把它修行的这个集合起来,把一个就是所缘的行相,这个净修它的心,这个我们晓得我们平常所缘的跟无明相应的杂染,那么现在拿这个东西来净化自己。条件刚开始的时候不够,所以一定要集聚资粮,尽除罪障。那基础呢?基础就在那个「律仪戒」上面。所以把这个三样东西合起来,合成功现在我们初机修行的第一步引导,这样。

【Meditation Session】

【What to do in between meditation sessions】

【In addition, follow the instruction called "Consolidation" with regard to (1) training the mind in the object of meditation and its subjective aspects, (2) observing vows (3) accumulating the collections. 】

So some people would consolidate their meditations, take the object of meditation and subjective aspect, and train to purify the mind. With this, we know that what we normally think of are defilements which concord with ignorance. So now we take the above to purify ourselves. When we first begin, we do not meet the requirements, so we must accumulate the collections [of merit and wisdom], and eliminate obscuration. Then what is the foundation? The foundation is the "vows." So when you combine these three together, they are consolidated into instructions for the beginners on meditation.
