The Ten Perfections

with Tempa Dukte Lama

Sat Nov 21st 9:30am-5pm, Sun Nov 22nd, 10am-1pm

Venue: Olmo Ling Center for Meditation and Compassionate Outreach
1101 Greenfield Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15217.

Join us for this Retreat on the practice of the Ten Perfections or Paramitas – a practice that is at the heart of the path of compassionate beings. The basis of the path of compassionate beings is the recognition of the interdependent nature of all beings. The practice of the Perfections helps us to actualize this recognition so that all our actions are truly beneficial for ourselves and others. Through relying on the practice of the Perfections, the virtuous qualities of the mind of awakening arise in us and become the skillful means for clearing obscurations. The Perfections are
  • the practice of generosity,
  • the wholesome conduct of our three doors of body, speech, and mind,
  • patience,
  • effort,
  • concentration and mindfulness,
  • the wisdom of knowing,
  • skillful means,
  • aspiration,
  • power and
  • equanimity.

Tempa Lama will offer teachings on each of the Ten Perfections and guide us in exploring how we can actualize them in our lives.
