在我们正式修行之前,前面真正重要的基础是什么?要净除罪障,要集聚资粮,而这两样事情都要经过如理地听闻,然后听闻了以后,然后呢如理去思惟。越是多方面地观察思惟,那么产生的功效越大;产生的功效越大嘛,净除罪障是越多,集聚资粮是越广越深。

【How to listen】- The relationship between listening, contemplating, removing obscurations and accumulation of merits

Before we actually set out to practice, what’s the most important foundation prior to that? It is to eliminate obscurations and to accumulate merits. Both of these things require listening to the teachings properly. Once you hear the teachings, you reflect accordingly. The more you observe and reflect, the greater the effects will be. The greater the effects will mean that the more obscurations you will have eliminated, and the merits you will have accumulated will be greater and deeper.
