The ten pāramīs are: morality (sila), renunciation (nekkhamma), wisdom (pañña), effort (viriya), tolerance (khanti), truth (sacca), strong determination (adhitthana), compassionate goodwill (metta), equanimity (upekkha), donation (dana).
From time to time, because of the ingrained habit pattern of the mind, the meditator is inundated by waves of craving, aversion, sloth and torpor, mental agitation, and doubt. These are nothing but the reaction of one’s own mental defilements trying to stop the process of purification that has begun. The wise student persists in the struggle, using all his or her energy to oppose these enemies. Through persistent efforts, the meditator gets strengthened in pāramī of viriya and is successful.
