episode 920: Faith is the Foundation: Virya is the Wall

There is an unfolding process within us – in each moment we have a choice to move towards the painful and unskilful, or we can move towards liberation. Faith is the intuition that there is a way of responding to experience that moves us away from suffering and towards liberation. What most deeply matters to us? What conditions allow for the process of flourishing to happen?

Dhammarati calls on the story of Milarepa to draw out the relationship between faith and virya in Dharma practice. From the talk entitled Virya - Bending Towards the Wholesome given at Glasgow Buddhist Centre, 2020, as part of their online series on the paramita of Virya.
