【修持轨理 The Meditation Session】饮食知量者-非太减少 Appropriate diet - Not eating too little

【修持轨理 - 未修中间如何行者】-饮食知量者-非太减少

我母亲今年多少?今年我母亲是八十六不晓得八十七了,那以前我回去的时候,她牙齿也没有了,偶尔给她弄点菜她不要,吃点豆腐乳,天天这样,我说怎么行啊?欸,来得个好耶!
我自己的经验我也告诉过你们,所以啊,现在我们真正重要的——见烦恼,见取见,你还没弄就觉得:哎呀,营养不够! 那的确地营养就是不够。为什么啊?我们在无明的意识当中轮转,你就是会受这个东西的支配。就好像平常说,你看见这两个人说话,好端端地跟你无关紧要,你想:这两个家伙在那儿说我! 你就心里烦恼得要命,他跟你了不相干哪,你就烦恼了! 我想我们每个人都有这个经验。现在我们还没吃,先就觉得:唉,今天营养不够了!的确,那个营养就是不够,会影响你的心情。现在修学佛法的人这样颠倒,说修行,修什么行!

【Meditation Session】
【What to do in between meditation sessions】
【Appropriate diet - Not eating too little】

How old is my mom this year? I think this year my mom is 86, not sure if she is 87. In the past when I went back (to see her), she did not even have any teeth left. I tried to fix some vegetables for her occasionally, she did not want it. She just eats fermented bean paste, like this every day. I said, how could that be done? Eh, she has great energy!

I have also told you about my own experience. Therefore, what's most important for us now - affliction of the view, a belief in the supremacy of wrong views. Before you even get started you feel, "Ah-ya, there isn't enough nutrition!" Then truly you would suffer a lack of nutrition. Why? This is because we are cycling in this ignorant state of consciousness and you will be led by this thing. It is just like normally when you see two people talking and it has nothing to do with you, but you will start to think, "Oh these two people are talking about me!" You get very afflicted in your mind. It has nothing to do with you but you are afflicted! I think we all have this experience. Now before we eat, we first already feel, "Ah, there isn't enough nutrition today!" Then truly, there will not be enough nutrition, it will affect you mind. This is very flawed for people who are learning the teachings. You say you meditate/practice, what are you meditating/practicing!
