The Six Paramitas (or Perfections)

Taught by Bob Saunders, this talk is the second in our extension of Tuesday night Buddhism 101 classes. The six Paramitas – Generosity, Ethical Behavior, Patience, Diligence, Meditation, and Wisdom – are a very simple and helpful summary of how to live as a Buddhist, especially in the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions.

Bob Saunders has been a practicing Buddhist for over 30 years and a founding member of Nalanda Institute. His background includes over 30 days of teachings from the H.H. Dalai Lama and 20 days with H.H. Sakya Trizin; many years with H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche; and over 25 years with Geshe Jamyang at Nalanda.
