Twin Cities KTC AND Hay river KTC Buddhist Meditation Centers

Paramita means transcendent virtue, sometimes translated as perfection.  The paramitas are generosity, ethical conduct, patience, diligence, meditative concentration and wisdom.  By practicing these six, they become a natural part of our daily lives.  These virtues bring us along the path, developing our compassion and weakening our self cherishing.

Update Summer 2020:  Lama Yeshe is giving a new series of talks on Zoom explaining each paramita in detail, and recordings of these talks can be accessed on YouTube (see website schedule for upcoming topics).
