The parami of Khanti, or paramita of Ksanti, is the perfection of Patience. In Buddhism it is often defined as forbearance, endurance, acceptance, or forgiveness, but according to its Pali roots it may be best defined as “willingness.” In the Mahayana tradition of Buddhism it is said that there are three dimensions to this practice:
~ Practicing Patience with Others
~ Patient Perseverance with Ourselves and Obstacles
~ Patient Acceptance of the Path
