Cultivating the 10 Noble Perfections of the Heart Can Take Us Across the Floods of Dukkha
This day is for people in the modern world who are wrestling with the issue of how to practice the Dhamma in daily life. The perfections provide a helpful way to develop a beneficial attitude toward daily activities so that any activity or relationship can become part of the practice. This happens best when undertaken mindfully, with the primary purpose of developing the perfections in a balanced way. Using these perfections of our character can be dependable and lasting and carry us through the “vicissitudes of life.” If we make these 10 beautiful qualities of mind a priority, the results are palpable in helping us see the purpose of our lives. This is why they deserve to take high priority in the way we plan our lives. Qualities that can be perfected in daily life: Generosity, Virtue, Renunciation, Wisdom, Energy, Patience, Truthfulness, Resolve, Loving-Kindness, Equanimity.
