Template:Tibetan The ten paramitas (Skt. daśa pāramitā; Tib. ཕ་རོལ་ཏུ་ཕྱིན་པ་བཅུ་, parol tu chinpa chu, Wyl. rigpawiki pha rol tu phyin pa bcu) are:

The six paramitas phar phyin drug - Six Paramitas. The six transcendent actions of Generosity, Discipline, Patience, Diligence, Concentration, and Discriminating Knowledge. See also: ten paramitas [RY] plus:

7.  Skilful means rigpawiki (Skt. upāyakauśalapāramitā; Tib. ཐབས་ལ་མཁས་པ་, tap la khepa, Wyl. thabs la mkhas pa),
8.  Strength (Skt. balapāramitā; Tib. སྟོབས་, top, Wyl. stobs),
9.  Aspiration prayers (Skt. praṇidhānapāramitā; Tib. སྨོན་ལམ་, mönlam, Wyl. smon lam) and
10. Primordial wisdom (Skt. jñānapāramitā; Tib. ཡེ་ཤེས་, yeshe, Wyl. ye shes).

These last four paramitas are aspects of the sixth paramita—the paramita of wisdom—and are not added to the first six. The way of dividing the paramitas into ten is particularly related to the teachings on the bhumis which describe the progression of a bodhisattva where each of the paramitas are successively perfected on each of the ten bhumis.
