      A person who has given with loving-kindness (Metta), compassion
      (Karuna) and sympathetic joy (Mudita) is always filled with joy to see
      his gifts benefiting others. In future, the remembrance of his good
      gifts and the benefits they have given others continues to fill him
      with joy. The advantages to the donor are therefore enjoyed both here
      and now, and in the future. One need not wait for future existences.
