Is it just me or doesn't MahaKaruna (and MahaMaitri, etc.) refer to the Ultimate Nature, as an aspectual quasi-synonym. Like saying: Tathata is MahaKaruna. That could be added. Thanks. -Vajrallan 01:38, 30 November 2006 (EST)

I'm not entirely sure I grasp the fullness of your question/statement, but karuna is the sanskrit for compassion and maitri is sanskrit for loving-kindness... as for any relation between these and Ultimate Nature I would prefer to leave to the reader... but that is probably because I don't grasp your statement.
