Publishing house dedicated to making known the Buddha's teachings.
Introduction
The Buddhist Publication Society (BPS), founded in Sri Lanka in 1958, is an approved charity dedicated to making known the teaching of the Buddha. BPS publications generally represent the standpoint of Theravada Buddhism or Southern Buddhism, the oldest living Buddhist tradition of which the Pali Canon gives the most authentic account of what the historical Buddha himself actually taught.

The Four Sublime States and the Practice of Loving Kindness
By Nyanaponika Thera and Nyanamoli Thera
Two essays on the four sublime states or brahmavihara: love, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity. Ven. Nyanaponika gives a brief description of all four with a section of contemplation exercises for each and concludes with a section on the inter-relationship of all four. Ven. Nanamoli's essay focuses on the basic brahmavihara of metta, translating passages from the Pali Canon in which the Buddha taught the practice of metta.
