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)
