【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.
