Advices for Meditation - Final

Lord Buddha never give tutes or printed notes for anyone who came to learn. Did not say for ask more information from another one. Lord Buddha once said for Bahiya (a name) "Bahiya, think only saw which was sawn, think only heard which was heard. Think the mind is only the mind." The meaning of this is, do not stitch for the contact (passa). There will be no feeling generation while you are seeing the contact is impermanent.

I told you about the valuability of the alms and virtue. In every sermon there is the simplicity. Complexity means defilements. When escaping from defilements Dhamma will come close. When we try to see Dhamma in deep it means we are growing defilements. If we say the difficulty of meditation for the newcomers who comes with disappointing mentality they will disgusted even with their lives.

The "language" of describing the life simply is the Vidarshana Meditation. Match the dhamma with your life as it is the Lord Buddha discoursed simply. Use the four satipattana dhamma which are discoursed by the Lord Buddha as the advice. Fill the depth of the life with simplicity of the meditation. Let the name-figure phenomena to be as it is. See the real impermanency of those with the vidarshana meditation. Dhamma is not a deep, long, wide, comfort or feeling. It is impermanency and impermanency is covered by the covesciousness. Look at the satipattana sutta and anapana sati sutta of Lord Buddha. These teach us how to smoothen the inspiration and expiration. The theory of how to smoothen the rough body's rough signal.

When you aims a beautiful figure you take in with covesciousness. But the figure is impermanent. When you aiming it with covesciousness you will collect sanskara. It is heresy. When you aiming a beautiful figure you take it with impermanence. You never form a covesciousness on it. Therefore no sanskaras collect with it. It is Dhamma. Learn the difference between the Dhamma and heresy with experience. You will see how simply the Lord Buddha discoursed it.

Make everyone in front of you a teacher. They all teach you something. You keep it well. What are they teach you? He is bad, he is good, gentle, ungrateful, eely, he is wit loving-kindness, he is unrighteous, he is righteous, ... finally they all have taught something to you. What is it? The impermanence.

When looking back this Bhikkhu sees the society which taught the lesson of impermanence. Dhamma is inside you and near you. Look carefully. Listen carefully. You will meet it. When we stepped as bhikku we do not think people will alms for us or honour us. We saw the suffer and hope to quit from it. Lord Buddha give only the three robes because to limit us inside the truth. While trying to go beyond, we will lose the path of Dhamma. This advice of Lord Buddha is important for anyone who practice meditation. See the figure as the tempter and the Pancha upadanakkanda forms according to the figure is also a tempter. Above is for whom are involved in meditation.

Following is for the non-meditators. Never feel upset if you are not involve in meditation. Suffer is the collision. Therefore discipline on the virtue and alms well with full of devotion on Triple Gem. That is a good meditation also. Increase courage.
