In Buddhism, Parami means perfection or completness of certain virtues which cultivate a way of purification while reaching a goal of enlightenment. A person who wants to become happier, should develop these ten qualities known as dasa parami. These are as follows:
1. Generosity, Giving of oneself: Dana parami.
2. Virtue, Morality: Sila parami.
3. Non-Attachment: Renunciation, Nekkhamma parami.
4. Wisdom, Insight: Panha parami.
5. Effort, Diligence: Viriya parami.
6. Patience, Tolerance: Khanti parami.
7. Truthfulness, Honesty: Sacca parami.
8. Determination, Resolution: Adhitthana parami.
9. Loving-kindness: Metta parami.
10. Equanimity, Serenity: Upekkha parami.
These ten pefections make a man purify his mind and find the end of suffering. It frees the mind of clinging.
