Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin

Dharma & Virya

Dharma is a concept in Buddhism which refers to actions that are considered morally right - or "the right way of living" - according to the teachings of the Buddha. For example, in this game you are rewarded with "Dharma" for buying from people, talking with people and saving people on the streets who are being threatened by thugs. As you complete actions that gain you Dharma, your fame on the streets improves.

Virya is a Buddhist term basically referring to ones diligence in accomplishing actions of great virtue. In other words, it refers to ones constant effort to do the morally correct things. In this game, the "Virya" is a big list of actions to complete - such as becoming friends with certain people, or talking to people 100 times, or eating at restaurants 20 times. You are rewarded with lots of Dharma for completing items on this list.

You can exchange the Dharma you earn via Dharma Exchange.
