Prajna Paramita

The state of the mind causes us to suffer, and so, to alleviate the suffering, we start to practice meditation.  What happens in meditation is that the speedy mind begins to slow down and things begin to settle, like the mud sinking to the bottom of a puddle of water when it is left undisturbed. When this settling has occurred, a kind of clear understanding of the way things work in the mind takes place.  This understanding is prajna, profound cognition." 

-Lama Tsultrim Allione
Ellen Booth Church

30-year practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism.  She is the teacher for the Key West Tara Mandala sangha and travels the world spreading the Dharma of Buddhist teachings.

PRAJNA
the sixth paramita 
Wisdom

The sixth paramita, Prajna, is the overarching paramita that encompasses all the paramitas; Generosity, Virtue, Patience, Joyous Effort and contemplation. 

It is said that the essence of this Wisdom Paramita is "the supreme wisdom . . . the highest understanding that living beings can attain.  It is beyond words and is completely free from the limitation of ideas, concepts and intellectual knowledge.  Prajna Paramita is the supreme wisdom that knows emptiness and the interconnectedness of all things.

Ellen Booth church will offer a teaching on the  last paramita Wisdom and will share about her recent visit and Dakini teaching at Tara Mandala.



TEACHER:  Ellen Booth Church (by skype)
"All major religious traditions carry 
basically the same message, 
that is love, compassion and forgiveness . . . 
the important thing 
is that they should be a part of our daily lives."
