Dhammadinna shares her thoughts on viriya/vigour as derived from Chapter 7 of the Bodhicaryavatara.

The Bodhicaryavatara is an 8th century text written by Shantideva, a Buddhist monk from the monastic ‘university’ at Nalanda, India, and Dhammadinna presented this material over three sessions on an Order retreat called “Teaching the Bodhicaryavatara.” She says at the beginning that she isn’t giving a formal talk and, indeed, the title is her description of what she was doing…. sharing some thoughts on the Bodhicaryavatara.

From the talk Some Thoughts on the Bodhicaryavatara given at Taraloka Retreat Centre, October 2008.
