The Ten Perfections, or Paramitas (from the Sanskrit), are seen as an extension of the essential elements of the Buddha’s original teachings. They denote awakened qualities of mind and heart that the Buddha fully embodied, and serve as pointers and practices for all who walk a path towards freedom from suffering.

The Perfections help build character, inner strength, and insight. These beneficial and beautiful qualities can be developed and integrated within daily life and formal meditation. They consist of: generosity, virtue, renunciation (letting go), wisdom, energy/effort, patience, truthfulness, resolve (determination), loving kindness, and equanimity.

For those seeking practical ways to bring the Dharma- which reflects the goodness of our true nature- deeper into the fabric of daily life and relationships, this contemplation of the perfections provides an inspiring framework for enrichment.

The Class Series Offers:

• An intimate look at a Buddhist teaching that contains broad secular and spiritual relevance.
• A week by week exploration and application of each of the 10 qualities that can be engaged within the midst of everyday life.
• A variety of reflective and inquiry exercises to refine your life’s purpose, strengthen your resilience, develop your self-confidence, and enhance your trust in navigating life’s many challenges.
• An understanding of path development and process. This is a step by step undertaking. The Buddha said “A path can hold everyone in it and it is a gradual developmental process”.
• An invitation to lean into your personal practice with devotion, creative engagement, and with your sights set on freedom from suffering that is the fruit of the path.
• An enriching experience of a contemplative community of practice.


As part of the Sol Center Contemplative Study Program this course highlights the great wisdom tradition of Buddhism and its relevance to the modern spiritual path. No experience with Buddhism is necessary. All are welcome.
