Compassion, kindness, equanimity, and joy are not only the fruits of the awakened life but also the path to it: attitudes of mind that can be cultivated by anyone willing to set the intention for doing so. In Boundless Heart, Christina Feldman shows how these ennobling qualities—known in Buddhism as the brahma viharas (sublime abodes) or the Four Immeasurables—are far more than simply the “feel-good” states they are sometimes mistaken for. If we pursue them sincerely as spiritual practice, they work together, complementing and enhancing each other, to lead us to the kind of awakening that we are compelled to share with others. Christina Feldman’s simple practices lead readers toward a life infused with kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity—and to a way of being that promotes those qualities to the world at large.

“Thanks to Christina Feldman for this important contribution on practices to develop kindness. Boundless Heart helps locate these ancient and essential practices in modern life. Anyone who wishes to know the sense of freedom kindness can bring will treasure this book.” —Sharon Salzberg
