Mick Jagger couldn’t get any satisfaction but you can

with joy and diligence. The six invaluable qualities are known as “the six paramitas” .

The six paramitas in Tibetan and Sanskrit are: (1) sbyin-pa (dana, “generosity”), (2) tshul-khrims (shila, “ethics”), (3) bzod-pa (kshanti, “forbearance, acceptance, patience, forgiveness”), (4) brtsong-’grus (virya, “joyful endeavour, diligence, zeal”), (5) bsam-gtan (dyana, “meditative concentration”), and (6) shes-rab (prajna, “discriminating wisdom-awareness, insight”). Paramita is a Sanskrit term and means “perfection.” It is translated into Tibetan as pha-rol-tu-phyin-pa, which literally means “gone to the other shore.” The other shore in the context of the Buddhadharma means transcendence of mental fixations concerning a subject, objects, and actions.

First and foremost I am not trying to convert anyone. Simple fact is that these self same paramitas are found in most faiths and philosophies that are based on Love.

I am trying to convince you that if you practice these six virtues we will have a nicer world and you will have more satisfaction.
