In this module of the Adventure Mahayana series, Acharya Lama Sönam Rabgye looks at the first five of the six paramitas: generosity, ethical discipline, patience, joyful effort, and meditation. These “perfections” or “transcendent virtues” form the basis for a practice that leads to enlightenment.

By engaging with the paramitas in everyday life as well, we bring the Buddhist path from the meditation cushion into the midst of our lives in a very simple and practical way and learn how to be a Bodhisattva in this life.
