Pende continues with the Way of the Bodhisattva by Shantideva with four sessions on the Enthusiasm (Joyous Effort) Chapter. Find out how to get over various types of laziness and to find energy for your Dharma practice.

Having patience I should develop enthusiasm;
For Awakening will dwell only in those who exert themselves.
Just as there is no movement without wind.
So merit does not occur without enthusiasm.

What is enthusiasm?  It is finding joy in what is wholesome.
Is opposing factors are explained.
As laziness, attraction to what is bad
And despising oneself out of despondency.
