【修持轨理 The Meditation Session】五受用业 The five actions of activity in a temple

【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

【寺内五种受用业中,】

前面的是行动业,然后呢五种受用业。

【身事业者,若行谓往经行处,或往同法者所,或为法故行经于道。】

这个「身」做些什么呢?就是行、住、坐、卧等。行包括这个。

【若住谓住行处,同法亲教,轨范尊重,似尊等前。】

住嘛,我们就住在这里,或者是同行哪,然后呢这个亲教师、轨范师,尊重跟似尊重。除了亲教轨范以外的,譬如我们现在这里,哦,这个请一位法师来跟我们讲,或者这个上座等等。那么有的是直接尊重,有的「似尊重」,换句话说,总比我们哪,他并没有显著的尊重的特质,但是他的的确确是我们的上座,我们该尊重的。

【The Meditation Session – What to do in between meditation sessions】
Acting with vigilance - The foundations upon which you act - The five actions of activity in a temple

【The five actions of activity in a temple are: 】
The previous ones were actions of movement. Then, the five actions of the activity in a temple.

【Actions of the body: walking in a designated area; going to one who is in accord with the teaching; entering a passageway for the sake of receiving the teaching; 】
What does this “body” do? It is to walk, stand, sit and lay down…etc. So movement includes these things.

【Standing in the presence of those whom you are going to see and who are in accord with the teaching—the abbot, master, guru, and the like; 】
Standing, is when we are standing here, whether you are with your fellow practitioners, or with the abbot, master, guru and the like. Other than abbot and master, for example here, oh, we have invited a Dharma Master to impart teachings, or the senior monks etc. Then there are those who are our direct gurus or those who are “like gurus”, in other words, they are ultimately [more superior] than us though they may not particularly have the defining characteristics of a guru, but they are indeed seniors to us. So we should respect them.
