Weekly Sunday Morning Sit & Dharma Talk (Online)
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, repeating until December 29, 2024
The Paramis or The Ten Perfections
The Paramis are the ten states of mind, attitude or behaviors that lead to peace. They are interrelated with each other without and are fluid, flowing in and out of each other. Below is a general statement about each:
Generosity: Having a willingness to open to all things, to share with others and contemplate abundance.
Morality: Being willing to undertake the training to live within the 5 precepts.
Renunciation: Cultivating the capacity to abandon our attachments.
Wisdom: Being able to see or consider the implications of the 3 Characteristics in any experience.
Energy: Our level of willingness to participate in mental development.
Patience: Cultivating the capacity to stop our resistance to the truth of an experience.
Truthfulness: Paying attention to the truthfulness of words and actions.
Resolution: The degree in which we are willing to follow our aspiration to practice.
Lovingkindness: The willingness to connect with and care about other sentient beings.
Equanimity: Being willing to consider phenomena outside our opinions and judgments.
