Tricycle's Daily Dharma

Wholesome Qualities in the Mind

In the broadest conception of the path, in the vast context of spiritual 
practice, we cultivate and nourish certain qualities that support and propel 
us forward into freedom. The Pali word parami refers to ten wholesome 
qualities in our minds and the accumulated power they bring to us: 
generosity, morality, renunciation, wisdom, energy, patience, truthfulness, 
resolve, lovingkindness, and equanimity. . . . Parami does not come from 
some being outside ourselves; rather, it comes from our own gradually 
accumulated purity. A Buddhist understanding of reliance on a higher power 
would not necessarily involve reliance on some supernatural being. It is, 
rather, a reliance on those forces of purity in ourselves that are outside 
our small, constricted sense of I, and that constitute the source of grace 
in our lives.

--Joseph Goldstein, Insight Meditation
