The Highest. . .

Wisdom (pa¤¤à) is the ability to make intelligent decisions and draw correct conclusions based on experience and knowledge.

Wisdom is an ability of the mind and thus the state of the mind will have an influence on the ability to be wise. Freeing the mind from prejudices and preconceived ideas, developing awareness and having an uncluttered and tranquil mind all assist in the development of wisdom.

The Buddha also asserted that there is a close connection between ethical behaviour and wisdom: `Wisdom is purified by virtue and virtue is purified by wisdom. Where one is so is the other. The virtuous person has wisdom and the wise person has virtue. The combination of virtue and wisdom is called the highest thing in the world.
