There is a manly Viriya in Dhamma but is only about developing kusala and reducing akusala.
Puthujjana Viriya is either akusala or mixed. If one is using akusala viriya there may be a toxicity.
When toxicity is involved there will be a kamma result on the spot or later kamma result.
Some ordinary examples for on the spot consequences of toxic physical strength :
eg1: If a bit drunken strong man challenges an ordinary man and start a fight, he can get beaten because the other person has the power of mindfulness and wisdom over the strong person at that moment. The toxicity makes the wisdom eye blinded and his assessments of self-power and the enemy's power is incorrect.
eg2: We know many young boys need some years to learn by experience that they are not strong as they thought. This happens to young girls also in other aspects.
eg3: What will happen if a body builder goes to fight with a martial artist thinking that his physical strength alone do the job?
eg4: What will happen if a 100 metres runner started one hour race with a marathon runner?
eg5: What will happen if a toxic strong man hit a an ordinary policeman
It is better to see how Bodhisatta has fulfilled Viriya Paramita
in Maha Janaka Jataka
The Bodhisatta replied, “This is my seventh day here in the ocean, I have not seen a second living being beside myself,—who can it be that speaks to me?” so, looking into the air, he uttered the second stanza:
“Knowing my duty in the world, to strive, O goddess, while I can,
Here in mid ocean far from land I do my utmost like a man.”
Desirous to hear sound doctrine, she uttered to him the third stanza:
“Here in this deep and boundless waste where shore is none to meet the eye,
Thy utmost strivings are in vain,—here in mid-ocean thou must die.”
The Bodhisatta replied, “Why dost thou speak thus? if I perish while I make my best efforts, I shall at all events escape from blame,” and he spoke a stanza:
“He who does all a man can do is free from guilt towards his kin,
The lord of heaven acquits him too and he feels no remorse within.”
As long as a man uses his akusala manly viriya, he is in the hands of women. A woman can cheat or bind him easily in many ways. So it is not a real strength of him but a big weakness in the mask of a strength. A man is spending and serving for a woman for the whole lifetime because of this weakness of him. He lives under the control of women because of this akusala, yet he thinks the women are under the control of him because it appears so, on the surface.
See how even Bodisatta was trapped by others using this weakness.
The Bodhisatta was once born as a golden peacock and lived on a golden hill in Dandaka. He used to recite one spell in honour of the sun and another in praise of the Buddhas, and thus he was protected from all harm. Khemā, queen of Benares, saw in a dream a golden peacock preaching. She longed for the dream to come true and told it to the king. He made enquiries, and sent hunters to catch the golden peacock, but they failed. Khemā died of grief, and the king, in his anger, inscribed on a golden plate that anyone eating the flesh of the golden peacock would be immortal. His successors, seeing the inscription, sent out hunters, but they, too, failed to catch the Bodhisatta.
Six kings in succession failed in this quest. The seventh engaged a hunter who, having watched the Bodhisatta, trained a peahen to cry at the snap of his finger. The hunter laid his snare, went with the peahen and made her cry. Instantly, the golden peacock forgot his spell and was caught in the snare.
The story was told to a backsliding monk who was upset by the sight of a woman magnificently attired.
Ananda is identified with the king of Benares.
“Bhikkhus, a woman binds a man in eight ways. What eight? A woman binds a man by her form … by her smile … by her speech … by singing … by weeping … by her appearance … by a present … by her touch. A woman binds a man in these eight ways. Those beings are thoroughly bound who are bound by touch.”
But obviously there is a kusala manly Viriya according to Suttas.
If a person uses solely the uplifted energy, it will be a hindrance to him.
"A monk intent on heightened mind should attend periodically to three themes: He should attend periodically to the theme of concentration; he should attend periodically to the theme of uplifted energy; he should attend periodically to the theme of equanimity. If the monk intent on heightened mind were to attend solely to the theme of concentration, it is possible that his mind would tend to laziness. If he were to attend solely to the theme of uplifted energy, it is possible that his mind would tend to restlessness.
If he were to attend solely to the theme of equanimity, it is possible that his mind would not be rightly concentrated for the ending of the fermentations.
This is what has happened to many young and inexperienced meditation enthusiasts. This is a milestone where the need of spiritual friends or Suttas or experiences comes in.
Furthermore a person Five Powers (Panca Bala)
namely faith, energy, mindfulness, concentration and wisdom to win the spiritual battle. It is said that the faith should be balanced with wisdom
and the energy should be balanced with concentration.
Otherwise the task will not be successful.
