Immeasurable love

The wish for sentient beings beyond number to be happy and to have the causes for happiness. 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).

Tibetan: བྱམས་པ་ཚད་མེད། byams-pa tshad-med
