Jewel Ornament of Liberation, Ch. 12 – 14

This week’s Dharma Talk is entitled Jewel Ornament of Liberation, Chapters 12 – 14: “The Perfection of Generosity;” “The Perfection of Moral Ethics;” and “The Perfection of Patience,” by Marcus Casey.

The teaching on the Six Perfect Virtues (also called the Six Perfections) show us how to take our aspirations for love and compassion and turn them into action. We begin by taking a warm and generous attitude toward ourselves and others, and then develop ethical behavior and ways to tame and cool our anger.
