prajna
般若 (Skt; Jpn hannya ) Prajna True or transcendental wisdom. Last of the paramitas. One of the highest attainments of Buddhist practice.

The wisdom that perceives the true nature of all things. Because prajna leads to enlightenment, it is regarded as the mother or source of all Buddhas, and obtaining prajna as the goal of Buddhist practice. Buddhism sets forth three types of learning that practitioners should aim to master: the observance of shila (precepts), the practice of dhyana (meditation), and the cultivation of prajna. The Wisdom, or Prajna, sutras, in particular, emphasize the cultivation of prajna, or the perfection of wisdom.
