措尼仁波切開示懶惰的對治方法
 
一般而言,堅持不懈是對治懶惰的良方。什麼時候我們覺得懶散呢?一種情況是我們在平靜的禪修狀態中,我們接受懶散的吸引,然後平靜和禪修的狀態丟失或消失。事實上,懶散的形成是因為習性的模式,一旦成為模式,接受它的瞬間,就跟著會被它帶走。但是安住在完美無造作的本覺本身就是完美精進、卓越堅持不懈的狀態。為什麼呢?因為當懶散潛能復發時它就自然地解脫了。因為懶散本身自解脫,就不需要運用概念上的精進來對治它。假使我們刻意嘗試去精進,那時本覺就變成概念化了。因此,在本覺狀態中不需要特別地精進,保持在本覺狀態的本身即是精進的圓滿。

Laziness
 
Generally speaking, perseverance is the remedy against laziness. When do we feel lazy? One situation is when we are supposed to be composed in meditation. There is an invitation to be lazy that we give in to, and then the state of composure, the meditation state, is lost or dissipated. As a matter of fact, laziness arises because of a habitual pattern. It arises as a pattern, gets accepted in the moment, and one then gets carried away by it. But resting very nicely in the state of unfabricated rigpa is itself the perfection of diligence, transcendent perseverance. Why? Because when the tendency to be lazy recurs, it is naturally freed. As laziness is self-freed, there is no need to apply the normal remedy against being lazy, which is conceptual diligence. If we deliberately try to be diligent, then rigpa becomes conceptual. Therefore, there is no need to be specifically diligent at that time. Remaining in the state of rigpa is itself the perfection of diligence.
