Four Immeasurables, Equanimity Part 2

The fourth immeasurable starts this way. nye ring means biased mind, or prejudice. nye is near, and ring is far, so one way to think of this expression is to keep some things close, and others far from.

chags sdang means attachment and aversion, chags is attachment, sdang is aversion.

So the whole expression nye ring chags sdang is attachment and aversion towards those close and far.
