We will dedicate this evening of practice together to an exploration of the liberating potential of viriya. While the Pali word “viriya” is often translated simply as “energy,” this heart quality actually involves cultivation of a kind of courage and gentle perseverance that sustains us and supports resilience.
Development of viriya is so important to our practice that the Buddha included it as one of the seven factors of awakening, the five spiritual faculties, and the four bases of power. How can we meet life’s challenges with a gentle perseverance imbued with courage? How does this quality support the unfolding of liberating insight into the truth of the way things are?
