What to Train when Mind is Sluggish, Slow & Low?
 

The Blessed Buddha once explained:
On any occasion, Bhikkhus, when the mind is sluggish, slow & low, then it is
suitable to develop the Investigation of states Link to Awakening, the
Energy Link to Awakening, and the Joy Link to Awakening! Why is it so?
Because when the mind is sluggish, slow and low, then it is easy to arouse,
incite, stir and stimulate with exactly these states...
Imagine, Bhikkhus, a man wants to make a small fire flare up. If he throws
dry grass, dry cow-dung, and dry timber into it, blows on it, and does not
scatter soil over it, would he be able to make that small fire flare up?
Yes indeed, Venerable Sir.
Similarly here, on any occasion, when the mind is sluggish, slow & low,
then it is time to develop the Investigation of states Link to Awakening,
the Energy Link to Awakening, and the Joy Link to Awakening! Why so?
Because when the mind is sluggish, slow and low, then it is easy to arouse,
incite, stir and stimulate with the qualities of exactly these states...
