The six paramitas or 'transcendent perfections' comprise the training of a bodhisattva, which is bodhichitta in action.
- Generosity: to cultivate the attitude of generosity.
- Discipline: refraining from harm.
- Patience: the ability not to be perturbed by anything.
- Diligence: to find joy in what is virtuous, positive or wholesome.
- Meditative concentration: not to be distracted.
- Wisdom: the perfect discrimination of phenomena, all knowable things.
The first five paramitas correspond to the accumulation of merit, and the sixth to the accumulation of wisdom.
