2017-01-09 Adhiṭṭhāna Parami: Determination 53:10
  Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia
Adhiṭṭhāna parami, determination, is the driving force behind our practice. It’s like an anchor that keeps us centered and focused as the Dhamma reveals itself ... as we learn about self-view, karma, and dukkha … and it has the capacity to carry us all the way to freedom.

It is the development and balancing of these seven wholesome factors that set in motion insight and the release from all grasping and stress.
