Vajrapani's Gateway to Freedom

by Viryadevi (2020)

Vajrapani, Bodhisattva of Energy is traditionally associated with the Gateway to Reality known as the Animita - ‘the Signless’ which is reached through a profound understanding of Impermanence. Not as a theory or as something abstract but as an experience and realisation.
In this talk, the final in her series on Virya given in 2020 to mark the Glasgow Buddhist Centre’s Year of the Paramita of Virya, Viryadevi asks what is the connection between Virya or Energy and Impermanance. She describes how the development and sustenance of Virya, relies on a commitment to increasing integration and purity. A commitment that we strengthen through time. And then points to how that commitment opens us into a world beyond time , the mysterious world of ‘the signless’.
