To meditate on what we have learned, [on] the essence of the teachings given by the Buddha Shakyamuni

Of course, as Dharma persons, it is important to study, to think and to meditate on all of these things. Only studying, only hearing is not enough, we have to use our own knowledge, our own wisdom to try to get the essence of that meaning [of teachings].
And not only that but also we have to meditate. To meditate on what we have learned, [on] the essence of the teachings given by the Buddha Shakyamuni. Most people in this world nowadays are busy to receive teachings from this lama, that teacher and other gurus, then they do not carefully or sincerely think about the meaning of the teaching – what they have heard, and even not meditate at all. People don’t really meditate. They don’t really meditate even though they said: “I meditated.” Actually, I don’t see people are really doing meditation; because they don’t know how to meditate correctly, because they don’t know how to think correctly, because they don’t have enough instructions. Therefore, they still, some of [them], lack conditions to meditate. So they don’t have improvement on the path on meditation. But as long as we are still alive, we still have energy to think, to meditate, we should try to meditate.
