In this talk we review the meaning behind each of the six perfections, or paramitas, and the value of each. These virtues are not called the six perfections for no reason; the paramitas are what we are trying to cultivate as we learn about our own true nature, which opens up the path to Awakening.
“So, last week we talked about the paramitas…the virtues that carry you over to this place that is always here. They carry you nowhere in particular and yet there’s a notion of arriving at a place in relationship with our lives. And we begin to live our life as if it mattered to us, all the time. We see the value of each action that we make and how it expresses our service to all others. We do that by cultivating these qualities, these paramitas.”
