【The Meditation Session – What to do in between meditation sessions】
Acting with vigilance – Acting vigilantly with respect to the foundations – Element of direction
【2) The element of direction: With regards to directions, you analyze to discover what will be happening and how to proceed, and then consider the situation in light of what you have concluded. For instance, when going out, do not go to the five places—one that sells liquor, and so on. Having understood that you should go to places other than those, be vigilant with regard to this when you go out. 】
The second element. For example, it says previously how we [should] do when going out and returning. The second one is the place where we are going. He tells us above, for example, with regards to the places we are going to, there are five places which we should not go - one that sells liquor, a brothel, [a bad slaughterhouse, the king’s palace, and a regular slaughterhouse]. We cannot go to these places. Well other than these, we can proceed to the places that we should be going. It is the same when [actually] going, “be vigilant” with regard to the places where we are going to, [i.e.] I know where I am going.
Now we normally loaf around with nothing to do. When we see a person who is going out, "Eh! You're going out, I want to go with you too!"
