The six paramitas, or transcendent perfections, are an essential concept in the practice of Mahayana Buddhism. The earliest source texts for the paramitas come from the buddha himself in the form of the Prajnaparamita Sutras

Para in Sanskrit literally means the 'other shore.' Here it means going beyond our own notion of the self. From the Buddhist point of view in general, and from the Mahayana point of view in particular, if we want to progress properly on the path, we need to go beyond our conventional understanding of the self. So when we say that paramita means 'transcendental action,' we mean it in the sense that actions or attitudes are performed in a non-egocentric manner. '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 paramitas are concerned with the effort to step out of the egocentric mentality.”

The six are generally translated as generosity, discipline, patience, diligence, meditative concentration, and wisdom.
