This book contains several short essays, one by the editor, Venerable Nyanaponika, and three by lay practitioners on one of the lesser known and too-little practiced sublime states of mind.
Mudita, usually translated “sympathetic joy,” was designated one of the brahma-viharas by the Buddha, one of the sublime, noble states of mind.
How is it to be practiced and what are the implications of mudita on the spiritual path? These essays address those questions.
