Hey You!

by Bodhinaga (2019)

Virya is the energetic counterpart to the patience of Ksanti; it is energy in pursuit of the good. Bodhinaga tells us how we can develop this noble vigour, which brings strength and courage like that of a virtuous knight. He guides us through counteracting the four 'enemies of virya' before introducing the Four Powers: ethical sources of energy to power the Dharma life.

Part 8 in the 'Path to Awakening' Sangha night series at Sheffield Buddhist Centre.

Points for reflection and discussion:
How could you bring more joy into your life?
Which enemies of virya drain energy for you?

Read Chapter 7 'Virya' of the condensed Bodhicaryavatara (available on the Sangha Night section of the website at the time this talk was uploaded) to accompany this week's talk.
