Do the two aspect of Bodhicitta: love and compassion and the wish to attain enlightement mean the same thing as conventinal Bodhicitta and Ultimate Bodhictta?

Whereas practicing love and compassion equates with conventional Bodhicitta and the aspiration to attain enlightenment equates with ultimate Bodhicitta (or the wisdom realizing emptiness)?

Or should they be taken as seperate categorizations?

:thanks:

Do the two accumulations relate directly to the method and wisdom aspects? For instance with the method aspect would the cultivation of loving-kindness fall under the accumulation of merit?
