Four Elements

Leave a comment

In Buddhism, there are four elements of love:

Maitri = loving-kindness
Karuna = compassion
Mudita = joy
Upeksha = freedom

True love in the context of Buddhism means – above all – to be present.

This requires intention and practice which is art of meditation.

Meditation brings our true presence to the here and now creating an opening to embrace the elements true love.
