|Devoted to Wakefulness!|
Self-Control means Guarding the 6 Senses!
The Blessed Buddha once said:
What are these 3
is a Bhikkhu devoted to wakefulness?
In the 1st watch of the night, while walking back & forth & sitting, he also purifies mind of obstructive states!
In the middle watch of the night, he lies down on the right side in the lion's posture, with one foot lying upon the other, aware & clearly comprehending, determining when to rise again.
After rising, in the last watch of the night, while walking back & forth and sitting, he cleans out any disadvantageous mental states again.
It is in this way, Bhikkhus, that a
true Bhikkhu is fully devoted to wakefulness! Bhikkhus, it is by
possessing these three qualities, that a Bhikkhu lives full of happiness
and Joy in this very life, and that he has prepared for the final
destruction of the mental fermentations...
