12b44792ba76ee54f176d570a9ac83ebWhat are the Perfections? The Perfections are noble qualities of heart and mind accompanied by compassion and wisdom. These beautiful qualities can be developed in daily life as well as in meditation. They are qualities of character that consist of generosity, virtue, renunciation, wisdom, energy, patience, truthfulness, resolve, loving kindness, and equanimity.

For people in the contemporary world who are struggling with the issue of how to bring the Dharma into daily life, the Perfections provide a useful framework for developing a fruitful attitude toward any activity or relationship undertaken wisely. When we develop the Perfections in a balanced way, they become a beneficial part of our daily practice and enhance our life.
