The meaning of Mudita

Mudita is a sanskrit name from the Buddhist dharmic tradition referring to  unselfish joy or the pleasure of finding joy in the happiness, success and well-being of others.

 

Mudita is one of the four Buddhist virtues for Mental Peace, being the other three: Maitri - loving-kindness and benevolence-, Karuna - compassion and self-compassion- and Upeksha -equanimity and non-attachment-.

Mudita is about looking at the success of others as a source of joy and inspiration and also about observing our tendencies to have a reaction of envy or jealousy and shifting that attitude to gratitude for what we do have and gratitude for the good fortune of others.

 

This attitude leads to a wider and more open heart. When we can be happy of the joy other beings feel, we are embodying Mudita.
