The Six Paramitas - Ancient Wisdom For Modern Living

7:00pm 23 June 2023 - 4:00pm 25 June 2023

Cost: £0.00

Venue: Samye Ling


Clive will share teachings about the six paramitas, how to practise meditation in action. These instructions are about the way of life for a meditator. We do not need to, “reinvent the wheel.” These teachings have benefited millions of people over hundreds of years although they may be unfamiliar to a western audience. The first five paramitas are under the broad heading of compassion:

1.      Generosity/ gratitude, 

2.      Moral ethics (discipline or harmlessness), 

3.      Acceptance,  Forbearance and patience, 

4.      Diligence and 

5.      Mental stability. 

Whilst the sixth is transcendental wisdom. 

If we approach these ancient teachings with humility and an open mind they can bring great benefit. They are especially useful to those practising mindfulness and compassion.
