We started last week with the 7 Factors of Enlightenment, which develop in our practice to bring us liberation, and saw how the first factor, mindfulness, relates to all the others and balances them, and the mind.
This Sunday we'll look at how viriya ("effort," "vigor," "diligence," "zeal, and "energy") moves us along in our practice. What is this application of the heart & mind, how is it generated and how do we use it to our benefit, to end suffering?
You might want to bring with you the chart & cartoon I handed out last week. I will have just a few extras with me. It won't be necessary, though, for the evening's discussion.
See you then,
