【修持轨理 The Meditation Session】于彼行正知 Acting vigilantly with respect to the foundations

【修持轨理 - 未修中间如何行者】- 正知而行者 - 于彼行正知

因为不犯罪,所以后面都不会堕落;因为你能够这样做的,所以你要想求得的一切都能够得到。前面所说的就是戒,你能够有这样的完整的戒的话,后面的定、慧都来了。所以这是我们能得到所有希望的,一切的戒、定、慧的现在下手的地方,这是因。你得到如是正确的,下了如是正确的因,一定得到圆满如是相应的果报。

那么把上面这个再总结起来,说这个四种行相,实际上呢,换句话说,我们现在出家修学佛法,所有做的事情,不外乎这几样东西。那么这个几样东西的话呢,它又分成功几个项目:第一个,关于你做的内容,譬如说你现在要去,怎么去法?来,怎么来法?然后去的地方,哪些对、哪些不可以;去的时间是合法、不合法。然后你做的事情,你做些什么,这个事情该怎么做。看看还有没有遗漏啦?没有一点遗漏!

【The Meditation Session – What to do in between meditation sessions】
Acting with vigilance – Acting vigilantly with respect to the foundations

Because you do not incur infractions, therefore you will not fall [to miserable realms] later. Because you can do this, so with all that you are seeking, you will receive. What was said before was actually ethical discipline. If you have such complete ethical discipline, then concentration and wisdom will ensue. So this is how we can get all that we wish for, all of ethical discipline, concentration and wisdom, this is where we begin. This is the cause. If you have gotten the correct [cause, i.e. ethical discipline], and you have planted the correct cause, then you will of course receive a perfect and concordant effect.

So to summarise again on what was said above, it mentioned these four elements. Actually, in other words, when we are ordained to learn the teachings, all that we do are included in these things. So with these things, they are divided into a few items. First, with the content of what you are doing, for example, you are now going somewhere, how do you go there? When you come, how do you come? Then with the places, where are the right places to go and where are the places you should not go. With the time that you are going, does it align with the teachings or not? Then with the things you do, what you are doing, how should this thing proceed.
Take a look, is there anything that you do which is omitted from this? Not one thing is missed!
