The practice of generating the four immeasurable thoughts can be repeated more than once. The purpose is this: just as when her one beloved son is sick, a mother will think about him more, over and over, and her compassion will thus increase, by reciting the prayer of the four immeasurables and doing the meditation many times over, your loving-kindness and compassion will increase.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche
