Meditation Categories 8. Four Immeasurables

61. The Practice of Immeasurable Love

Longchen Nyingtik Meditation 61

The Beginning

Take refuge and arouse bodhicitta.

The Main Part

The objects of this meditation are all sentient beings. As much as we wish happiness for our friends and relatives who lack it, we also wish the same happiness for all other miserable beings. By this training, we begin to regard all sentient beings as our own loved ones.


The way to meditate is to take the example of how you love your parents and those dear to you. Meditate with love first on a single sentient being and then extend it to all sentient beings, making the love immeasurable.


Finally, abide in one-pointedness without any reference point.

The Conclusion

Dedicate the merit of your practice to all sentient beings.
