Four Immeasurables, Sympathetic Joy Part 4

This is the whole third immeasurable. A typical translation is something like this:

Maybe all sentient beings never be separated from the bliss without sorrow.

As mentioned earlier, this is the code word for bliss that enlightened beings experience. It is the only form of bliss that is not tainted, compared with samsaric bliss that has to end at some point. The only reason samsaric bliss was in first place was specific good deeds in the past that created the causes for this bliss.

Fortunately, there are ways to create this sorrowless bliss that will never cease.
