Measureless liberation of the mind

( The Buddha // 7. Godatta, Cittasamyutta, Salayatanavagga )

A wise one dwells pervading one quarter with a mind imbued with loving kindness, likewise the second quarter, the third quarter, and the fourth quarter. Thus above, and so below, across and everywhere, to all as oneself, one dwells pervading the entire world with a mind imbued with long kindness, vast, exalted, measureless, without hostility, without ill will. One dwells pervading the entire world with a mind imbued with compassion, altruistic joy, and equanimity. Thus above, and so below, across and everywhere, to all as oneself, one dwells pervading the entire world with a mind imbued with equanimity, vast, exalted, measureless, without hostility, without ill will. This is called measureless liberation of the mind.
