karma, for today's traveler


after we visited the monastery in chiang dao, the monks gave each of us a book as a gift (pictured, left).
.
chapters include:
.
1. what's Really going on?
2. world equilibrium
3. the wall of world Harmony
4. mental equilibrium
5. the evolving mind
.
on page 80, the "four ideal states of mind" are listed as follows:
.
* Loving-kindness (Metta)
* Compassion (Karuna)
* Sympathetic Joy (Mudita)
* Equanimity (Upekkha)
