It’s wasting to practice if your mind is in bad state though you are trying to sit resisting with painful legs

What makes everything possible? Faith makes everything possible. What makes every Dharma activity fruitful is genuine faith. If you don’t have that condition, you are not Dharma person. If you do not have faith in Buddha then you are not followers of the Buddha. Therefore, we need faith, devotion. This is the first thing we need to have. I know you have faith. Because you have faith you are here. You also know you are faithful to the Buddha. But your mind is always moving, not stable, not reliable. Your mind is different at different times. Therefore, we need to check. So check your mind. You have enough faith, your faith is genuine, your faith is weak or your faith is dying, losing, or it is still there. So, you have to make sure if there is enough good condition, devotion. Of course, you have devotion because you went through difficulties, you spend time, a lot of money, everything to come here. Your purpose is of course Dharma: to attend the Moonlam, to visit your teacher, to circumambulate the Stupa, but since you are beginner, originally your motivation is to make some good action, still you have to check your mind always. Check your motivation all the time. That is the first thing.
