The practice of Dharma should bring you to the point where you can
maintain the same constant awareness whether in or out of practice
sessions. This is the quintessential point of all spiritual instruction;
without it, however many mantras and prayers you recite, however many
thousands of prostrations and circumambulations you do, as long as your
mind remains distracted none of it will help to get rid of your
obscuring emotions. Never forget this most crucial point.
