May bodhicitta, precious and sublime, arise where it has not yet come to be and where it has arisen may it never fail but ever flourish greater and greater.
The Six Paramitas – Tricycle
Buddhist teachings refer to a set of six interrelated virtues called the transcending perfections, or paramitas—benevolent generosity, ethical discipline, forbearing patience, joyous perseverence, meditative absorption, and discerning wisdom. They are genuine expressions of love and compassion and the means of cultivating one’s own true nature.
