【修持轨理 - 未修中间如何行者】-正知而行者-何为所行事-五受用业

【意事业者,】
最后呢,就是我们的意怎么办。

【谓诸默然,若于中夜而正眠卧,若赴静处,思所闻义。若以九心修三摩地,若正勤修毘钵舍那,或于热季极疲倦时,于非时中起睡眠欲,略为消遣。】

那么意业怎么办呢?或者平常的时候默然,默然就是说静默的时候那怎么办;还有呢就是保持内心怎么个宁静。「若于中夜」那么晚上睡觉的时候;还有呢,若赴寂静处「思所闻义」,自己啊在那个地方真正好好地思惟,那个地方不要让人家打扰。或者跟人家,嗯?对!没错。「若以九心修三摩地」这个九心修三摩地,下面那个止观,那个奢摩他品会详细说。这个「九心」就是我们修上去的次第,第一个这个心相怎么样,第二个怎么样,到了第九心那是证得三摩地的时候,这就是止。还有呢,下面就是观。另外一种呢,就是到了很热的时候,那虽然不该睡眠的,睡眠只有中夜,平常的时候,你起来的时候,怎么样消遣一下。他唯一让我们消遣的就是那个时候。

【(3) actions of mind: 】

Lastly, what do we do with our mind?

【sleeping in the middle period of the night; retiring to a quiet place and then not speaking while you think over the meaning of what you have heard, practice concentration by means of the nine mental states, and strive for insight; and when feeling fatigued during hot weather, doing something to dispel your desire to fall asleep at an improper time; and 】

So what do you do with the action of the mind? Perhaps remain silent most of the time. Silence means you do not speak and what you would do during this time. Then you would also need to keep your mind at peace. In the middle period of the night, that is when you sleep. Then, you go to a quiet place and "think over the meaning of what you have heard." So you truly contemplate at that place, and it should be a place where no one will come and interrupt you, or that you can associate with others. Agree? Right! Exactly. "Practice concentration by means of the nine mental states," this practice by means of the nine mental states will be explained in detail under serenity and insight. These nine mental states are the sequence in which we advance. How the first mental state is like, (how) the second is like, and when arriving at the ninth mental state, Samādhi is attained. That is serenity and then followed by insight. Another kind is when you are feeling really hot, since you should not be sleeping because sleeping is allowed only during the middle period of the night, so usually you would get about doing something leisurely to dispel your desire for sleeping. So the only time that we can do something leisurely is at those times
