ฐาน ๓-๔ คือสองด้านของเหรียญอันเดียวกัน

  • 0:03 - 0:06
    the 4 foundations of mindfulness:
  • 0:06 - 0:09
    my analogy is to compare them
    as 4 stepping stones
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    then, we level the first 2 stones
    for left & right foot
  • 0:12 - 0:16
    so that we can step into the 3rd & 4th
    foundation accordingly.
  • 0:16 - 0:20
    the 3rd foundation is not straight forward
  • 0:20 - 0:23
    it has a few fronts that
    we need to deal with.
  • 0:23 - 0:27
    I talked about 2 sides of
    the same coin before.
  • 0:27 - 0:31
    The first 2 foundations are for us to
    reduce the population of Jerry/thoughts
  • 0:31 - 0:33
    so that we can reach the 3rd
    home/foundation
  • 0:34 - 0:36
    which is inner peace or mental space
  • 0:36 - 0:40
    then straight to the 4th home/foundation
    which is 'innocent perception'.
  • 0:40 - 0:43
    When you clearly see mental space,
    you will be able to catch
  • 0:43 - 0:45
    or see single Jerry/thought
  • 0:45 - 0:49
    as if seeing a single drop of water
    touching the still surface of a pond,
  • 0:49 - 0:50
    you'll see the ripple clearly
  • 0:50 - 0:54
    you'll see the arising, existing
    & disappearing of each thought so clearly
  • 0:54 - 0:56
    In seeing the come and go of Jerry with
  • 0:57 - 1:00
    your mental eye is the very practice
    of the 3rd foundation.
  • 1:00 - 1:04
    Many practitioners face a problem:
  • 1:04 - 1:09
    once I've reached the peace & stillness,
    what should I do next?
  • 1:09 - 1:14
    So, initially, we reduce Jerry
    population first
  • 1:14 - 1:19
    because too many Jerry
    similar to a rough sea
  • 1:20 - 1:24
    It's impossible to spot a single dewdrop
    on such a rough & turbulent surface
  • 1:24 - 1:28
    So, the practice of the first
    2 foundations:
  • 1:28 - 1:32
    observing your breath, movements
    & physcial sensations
  • 1:32 - 1:36
    They are aimed to reduce Jerry or the
    the number of your thoughts.
  • 1:36 - 1:40
    So that you can see your mental
    space clearly.
  • 1:40 - 1:42
    It doesn't mean Jerry will all disappear.
  • 1:43 - 1:46
    it means you'll be able to catch each
    Jerry or each thought easier.
  • 1:46 - 1:51
    It is as if you clearly see the ripple
    on the completely still water.
  • 1:51 - 1:55
    Likewise, you'll be able to observe
    the ripple effect of each Jerry.
  • 1:55 - 2:00
    what or how Jerry does to your
    inner self. You'll see the gory details.
  • 2:00 - 2:06
    of what & how Jerry do to you sending
    you up & down emotional scale.
  • 2:06 - 2:10
    Now, let's move on to the practice.
  • 2:10 - 2:14
    We're going to focus on the 1st & 2nd
    foundations first.
  • 2:14 - 2:18
    As usual, we're going to reduce Jerry
    so that we can see our mental space.
  • 2:18 - 2:22
    making the surface of our mind
    very still & quiet
  • 2:22 - 2:25
    just like a very calm sea.
  • 2:25 - 2:30
    So that we can catch each Jerry/thought
    later. Now, I will connect with Nirvana.
  • 2:30 - 2:33
    As you know, Nirvana is
    innocent perception,
  • 2:33 - 2:35
    they are the same experience.
  • 2:35 - 2:39
    So, mental space & innocent perception
    are merely 2 sides of the same coin.
  • 2:39 - 2:43
    So, let's assume 'mental space' be
    the nature of the 3rd home/foundation
  • 2:43 - 2:47
    Once you reach your mental space, peace
    calm & still within
  • 2:47 - 2:50
    that is the same moment you're having
    the innocent perception
  • 2:50 - 2:52
    - perceive everything as it is.
  • 2:52 - 2:55
    See? the 3rd & 4th foundation
    are merely two sides of the same coin.
  • 2:55 - 2:59
    You need to understand this before
    you commence your meditation practice.
