The 10 Paramis in Theravada Buddhism:
The teachings of Paramis are indeed a general teaching. They are listed as qualities cultivated throughout the Samsara by the Bodhisattas to reach one of the 3 modes of enlightenment. If you are someone who is looking for a structured and specific method of attaining freedom from suffering, I would suggest you to study the Noble Eightfold Path instead of the Paramitas. If you are studying the Paramitas for educational purposes, I would recommend reading the Buddhavamsa.
Sīla pāramī: virtue, morality, proper conduct
Which consists more of not killing, not stealing, not committing sexual misconduct, not lying - using proper speech, and not using alcohol or drugs. The other pāramīs refer to other types of perfections but in some way they are included, I think. Friendliness for example would include the first three and truthfulness the fourth, but I don't see the fifth included.
