The Nature and Implications of Mudita, by L.R. Oates
In this short essay the author explains how the practice of mudita — sympathetic or unselfish joy — can be an effective way to develop one's own store of merit and to share it with the wider world. (From the anthology: Mudita: The Buddha's Teaching on Unselfish Joy, four essays by Nyanaponika Thera, Natasha Jackson, C.F. Knight, and L.R. Oates.)
