What is the Definition of Energy?

The Blessed Buddha once said:
What, Bhikkhus, is the ability of Energy? Here, Bhikkhus, the Noble Disciple lives
with energy aroused for the elimination of all disadvantageous mental states & for
gaining a firm foundation in all advantageous states. He is determined, resolute in
all his 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 behaviour (action=kamma).
Without any advantageous behaviour (action), neither is there any good result..
No cause gives no effect! Therefore: Raise up and stir up your elevation!
For details on the Enthusiastic Ability of Energy see:
Get Going!
Have a nice & noble day!
Friendship is the Greatest! Bhikkhu Samāhita _/\_ ]
