Great compassion

The wish for all others, including arhats, to be free from not only the three types of suffering and their causes but also to be free of the limitations of their cognitive obscurations. Aimed equally at all beings, it regards them like a mother for her only child and leads to an exceptional resolve to help them all and a bodhichitta aim to achieve enlightenment so as to be best able to help them.
