According to the Buddha, in order to abide eternally with Brahma, the universal God, one must practice the Brahmaviharas, namely love, compassion, joy and equanimity. The Brahmaviharas are the four constituent elements of love, and are called "immeasurable" as they grow each day within the one who practices them, making him happy. Thich Nhat Hanh, a famous Vietnamese monk, Zen master and poet, illuminates the path of the Brahmavihara in this book, drawing on ancient and new stories of the great Buddhist tradition and the rich baggage of his personal experience.
