THE SIX PERFECTIONS IN BUDDHISM IS A PRACTICE THAT TAKES A PROGRESSIVE APPROACH

Caller: The Six Perfections i.e. the perfection of generosity, morality, tolerance, diligence, concentration, and wisdom are the guides in Buddhist practice that take a progressive approach, am I right to say that?

For example: Through our practice of generosity, we learn morality; through morality, we learn to be tolerant; through tolerance, we are able to dedicate ourselves to progress in our spiritual cultivation; once we are vigorous in our cultivation, we learn the mind of concentration; and this mind of concentration, is the foundation of wisdom, is that right?

 Master Jun Hong Lu: That’s correct.  I have mentioned this, for example in my books, Buddhism in Plain Terms and in my discourses to disciples and monastics.
