We approach Buddhism by not only studying it, but also by applying the teachings to our own practice. The Paramitas (or Perfections) are vital tools that enhance our effort.
Nancy Bonardi will draw from the teachings of the Buddha, Master Sheng Yen, and other teachers, as well as from her own practice as she outlines the Paramitas’ importance in daily life.
"They are inspirations, not fixed rules." -Aitken Roshi
