How to discipline Body and Mind?

Discipline Body and Mind means, ‘everthing stays in order’; this means, cultivate the body and mind eagerly and unchaotically.
It also implies, ‘protection’; that is, righteously upholding the conduct of the precepts; disallow the six carnal bad feelings, control the three poisonous minds, awaken enthusiastically; be alert; and keep it pure.
Then if all is done, we can call it maintaining disciplines.

Reexamine body and mind carefully during the zen meditation.
