2. Energy (viriya)

“Energy is my beast of burden,
Carrying me to security from bondage.
It goes ahead without stopping
To where, having gone, one does not sorrow.”
( The Buddha )

Everything in the universe can be classified as energy. Energy is motion, energy is power. Without energy nothing would exist.

Developing energy as a form of spiritual power involves the purification of energy through skillful means. What skillful means?

Energy and awareness flow together. Where energy flows, awareness follows. Where awareness flows, energy follows.

Prana as a support for Viriya.
