  • snying rje

One of the four immeasurables of the Mahāyāna, known in early Buddhism as “pure abodes” (Skt. brahmavihāra), which comprise (1) loving kindness, (2) compassion, (3) sympathetic joy, and (4) equanimity. Immeasurable compassion arises from the wish for all living beings to be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
