Upcoming Retreats:

Cultivating the Six Perfections

with The Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi

on-line Retreat

Saturday, January 15, 2022  

                                8AM PT/ 11AM ET                                     

 The Six Perfections or Paramitas, meaning “to transcend”,  are the precepts for Bodhicitta aspiration and are at the heart of the actions of one on the bodhisattva path.  The first four are generosity, ethical discipine, patience and joyful perseverance.  The fifth is meditative concentration and the sixth is wisdom.  Practicing the Six Perfections allows us to overcome our mental afflictions, transcend conceptual thinking, and see the true nature of things, so we can ultimately liberate ourselves from the sufferings of samsara.
