Today we are able to see through and become monks, the “seeing through” is important. What exactly do we see through? We see through “the seven affections and five desires.” We do not desire the “appearance, sound, smell, taste, feeling and thought” within the basic necessities of life, and we see through all affections - affections from our parents, affections from our spouse, we have to put them all down! When we are practicing diligently, we have to put down our body and mind completely. Otherwise even if we appear to be sitting there quietly and solemnly, actually we are having all kinds of illusionary thoughts, and it’s difficult to keep focused on the right state of mind.
