From the Founder

Mudita is one of the most cherished virtues in Buddhism, yet there is no one word in English that can be used to translate this Sanskrit term. Mudita is the opposite of schadenfreude: the selfless joy and pure delight when witnessing the good fortune of others. While this virtue can be difficult to practice with all beings, the rewards of mudita are great: eventually this practice can create an infinite and always present inner wellspring of joy.
