【The Meditation Session – What to do in between meditation sessions】
【I have arrange both this section on acting vigilantly and the section on restraining the sensory faculties in accordance with the noble being Asanga's citations of sutras and the subsequent commentaries on the meaning of those citations. 】
With the above, these two things are the explanations of the sutra by Asanga Bodhisattva. A true noble being like him, when he says things, there must be a basis for it. What is the basis? That must have been said by Buddha. He only takes the core concepts and the principles, explains them accordingly and clearly to propagate them. So when we say the character of phenomenon, once you understand this section, you then realize the beauty of character of phenomenon! And the greatness of the character of phenomenon! We cannot go without it when learning the Teachings, especially for beginners. It tells you everything very clearly, yet now we often feel like this, “ah, you should not be discerning [e.g. distinguishing between right and wrong]!” But then if you are not discerning, what are you doing? You are in a state of ignorance. That is such a cause for regret! That is so pitiful!
