In the meditation tradition, vigilance is a precise technical term that refers to:

"...an accurate awareness of whether you are distracted and whether you are becoming distracted." —Tsong Khapa, The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path

"Examining again and again the states of the body and the mind (intellect and emotion) — just that, in brief, is what it means to preserve vigilance." —Shantideva, Engaging in the Bodhisattva Deeds

Vigilance is a capacity of consciousness that works alongside mindfulness, another technical term with precise meaning.

"When mindfulness dwells at the gate of your mind for its protection, then vigilance will appear." —Shantideva, Engaging in the Bodhisattva Deeds

In the Shamatha meditation teachings of Buddha Maitreya, vigilance is represented visually by a hook used to tame animals. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Whosoever imitates does not learn; whosoever imitates becomes an automaton, and that is all... A mind that knows only how to imitate is mechanical; it is a machine that functions but is incapable of creating, that does not know how to truly think, because it only repeats, and that is all."
