Ceylon & Sri Lanka Stamps Banknotes Coins, Dasa Paramita (1)

Collection of Stamps for Sri Lanka (& Ceylon before 1972). Collectors items related to Dasa Paramita



Pāramitā is a Buddhist term often translated as perfection. It is described in Buddhist commentaries as noble character qualities generally associated with enlightened beings. Pāramī and pāramitā are both terms in Pali but Pali literature makes greater reference to pāramī, while Mahayana texts generally use the Sanskrit pāramitā.



Here Parama means the noblest, highest, or most excel-lent. Therefore Paramitas are the most excellent virtues, or the noblest qualities of the Bodhisattas. In other words Paramitas are the line of conduct or the Pre-requisites for Enlightenment. These ten virtues should be practised by every Buddhist who wishes to attain Nibbana - the final Emancipation, through any Yana or vehicle. Nibbana can be reached through one of the following three Yanas: l. Samma Sam Buddhahood 2. Pacceka Buddhahood 3. Arahantship
