Description - Boundless Heart by Christina Feldman
The four sublime qualities (brahma viharas) that can be cultivated through practice and lead to a life lived with wisdom and love. Also known as the "four immeasurables," they are metta, karuna, mudita, and uppekha, or kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity. Many people are familiar with metta, or lovingkindness, meditation, which has become very popular in the last couple decades. But, according to Christina Feldman, to focus on that quality--delightful as it is--is to leave the practice somewhat unbalanced. The four qualities in fact help and balance each other in a way that enhances them all. Christina presents teachings on the brahma viharas along with simple practices that can lead to a life infused with kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity, and to a way of being that promotes those qualities in the world at large.
