10.  Next, beginning with an attitude
Of love
for all living creatures,
Consider beings, excluding none,
Suffering in the three bad rebirths -
Suffering birth, death and so forth.
11.  Then, since you want to free these beings
From the suffering of pain,
From suffering and the causes of suffering,
Arouse immutably the resolve
To attain enlightenment.  ~ from "The Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment"
by Indian Buddhist Master, Atisha Dipamkarashrijnana (982-1054)

In Buddhism, the four immeasurable attitudes are 

Immeasurable Love

Immeasurable Compassion

Immeasurable Joy

Immeasurable Equanimity

 

~ Living the Love in this world IS the Truth of Life ~
