Immeasurable compassion

The wish for sentient beings beyond count to be free of the three types of suffering and their causes. Because it is developed in common by Hinayana and Mahayana practitioners, its audience does not include arhats. Its actual attainment requires its being held by one of the states of mental constancy (skt. dhyāna).
