The six perfections—also translated as the six far-reaching practices or the six paramitas in Sanskrit — describe the methods that bodhisattvas transform their minds into the mind of a buddha, a fully awakened one. These six practices are generosity, ethical conduct, fortitude or patience, joyous effort, concentration, and wisdom.
In this long weekend retreat, Ven. Thubten Chodron helps us begin to adopt these practices right now, beginning with the perfection of generosity. Through teachings and meditations, we learn how the mind of generosity enriches our lives now as we learn to cherish others, and helps us steadily progress towards becoming great bodhisattvas and then buddhas.
