Patience and Persistence: Two Empowerments from the Paramis

Living in this realm brings inevitable stress, physical and mental pain, and disorientation from constant change. This has never been more true than during the Covid-19 pandemic of the past year. The paramis allow us to live with the truth of dukkha (experiencing unsatisfactoriness or disquiet) in a manner that’s empowering. This talk focuses on the paramis of patience and persistence and the endurance, steadfastness, and clarity that can be cultivated in practicing these two qualities.
