In the practice of Mahāyāna Buddhism, the Six Pāramitā, or the Six Transcendent Perfections, is an essential concept. They form the guidelines for the entire code of conduct for Bodhisattvas. Here, 'Transcendental' does not refer to some external reality, but rather to the way in which we conduct our lives and perceive the world—either in an egocentric or a non-egocentric way. The six pāramitā guides the way of life concerning the effort to step out of the egocentric mentality.
