What is the Definition of Energy?

What is the Definition of Energy?

The Blessed Buddha once said:
What, Bhikkhus, is the ability of Energy? Here, Bhikkhus, the Noble Disciple lives
energy aroused for the elimination of disadvantageous mental states and for
gaining a firm foundation in advantageous states. He is determined, resolute in all
efforts, not evading any good opportunity to train advantageous mental states.
This is called the ability of Energy. Source: Samyutta Nikāya V 48

Without Energy, there is neither advantageous action, nor effort!
Without any advantageous action, there is neither any good result!
No cause gives no effect! Therefore: Raise and stir up yourself!

For details on the Enthusiastic Ability of Energy see:

Get Going!

Have a nice & noble day!

Friendship is the Greatest!
Bhikkhu Samāhita _/\_ ]
