      Friends:

      Mutual Joy cures all vicious Envy and Jealousy!
      The dear companion can be the proximate cause for Mutual Joy, where one
      rejoices in another being's success... One thus rejoicing in other's fortune
      is called a 'boon companion', for he is constantly glad: He laughs first and

      speaks afterwards! So he should be the first to be pervaded with gladness.
      Or on seeing a dear person being happy, cheerful and glad, mutual joy can
      be aroused thus: 'See this being is indeed glad! How good, how excellent!'
      Just as one would be glad at seeing a dear and beloved person very happy,
      exactly so does one pervade all other beings in all directions with mutual
      joy...
      Rejoicing mutual joy can also be aroused by remembering other's happiness
      in the past and recollecting the elated joy aspect in this way: 'In the past
      he
      had great wealth, a great following and he was always glad'. Or mutual joy
      can be aroused by apprehending the future glad aspect of his in this way:
      'In the future he will again enjoy similar success and will go about in gold

      palanquins, on the backs of elephants or on horseback'. Having thus aroused
      mutual joy regarding a dear person, one can then direct the very same
      feeling
      successively towards a neutral one, and gradually towards any hostile
      person.
      Vbh 274, Vism I 316

      Mutual joy causes Contentment! No mutual joy thus means Discontentment!
      Therefore: If being generally dissatisfied, then be happy over other's
      gains.
      Secondly: Mutual joy causes all envy & jealousy to evaporate into
      equanimity!



      Mutual Joy (Mudita), which cures all envy & jealousy, is a divine state!

        Unselfish Joy: How to rejoice in others Success:



        By seeing that:
        If only happy at one's own success, such ego Joy is rare and limited!
        If happy also at others success, the Joy is more frequent &
        even infinite!

        By observing that:
        It starts with basic sympathy, develops into acceptance, genuine approval and appreciation. It culminates in rejoicing mutual joy
        by directing mind to initiation, frequent cultivation and boundless expansion of Mutual Joy..

        By knowing that:
        Mutual Joy is the proximate cause of satisfied contentment!
        Mutual Joy eliminates all acidic jealousy, grudge and green envy!
        Mutual Joy is an infinite, truly divine, infinite and sublime mental state!

        Buddha:
        If it were impossible to cultivate this Good, I would not tell you to do so!

        Buddhaghosa:
        See how this good being is very Happy!
        How fine! How excellent! How sweet!

        Let there be Happiness. Let there be open Freedom.
        Let there be Peace. Let there be Bliss from this.
        Let there be Understanding of this Mutual Joy!

          How to train Rejoicing Joy in others Success?

          When sitting alone, in silence, each early morning, with closed eyes one
          wishes:
          May I radiate and meet only never-ending and mutually rejoicing joy!
          May I & all the various beings on the 31 levels of existence develop and
          find
          only celebration and elation in a never-ending mutually rejoicing joy!
          May I & all beings on the sense-desire, fine-material, and the formless
          plane
          develop and encounter this generous, infinite and mutually rejoicing joy!
          May I & all beings in the front, to the right, the back, the left, and below
          as
          above, develop and experience openhearted, sharing, & mutually rejoicing
          joy!
          May I and all beings within this city, country, planet and universe always:
          Be fully aware and deeply mindful of this content and mutually rejoicing
          joy!
          Examine all details & aspects of this satisfied and mutually rejoicing joy!
          Put enthusiastic effort in our praxis of this devoted mutually rejoicing
          joy!
          Enjoy enraptured jubilant gladness in this exulting mutually rejoicing joy!
          Be silenced by the tranquillity of quiet and all smiling mutually rejoicing
          joy!
          Be concentrated & absorbed into one-pointedness by genuine rejoicing joy!
          Dwell in an imperturbable equanimity of pure and mutually rejoicing joy...
          Yeah! May it be even so, since mutual joy causes the jewel of contentment!




          Comment: Mutual Joy is the 3rd infinite mental state (Appamañña):
          This gradually reduces all envy, jealousy, possessiveness, stinginess,
          avarice
          miserliness, green covetousness and unhappiness related with all these
          states.
          Mutual Joy is the proximate cause of satisfied and fulfilled Contentment...
          Lack of mutual joy is the proximate cause of dissatisfied discontentment...
          Joined with the 7 links to Awakening it will later cause a formless jhana...
          Be happy at all and especially other being's success! Then calm comfort
          grows!

                    The Blessed Buddha pointed out:

                    Buddhaghosa <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhaghosa> :
                    See how this worthy being is very Happy!
                    How fine! How excellent! How sweet!


                    Let there be Happiness. Let there be open Freedom.
                    Let there be Peace. Let there be Bliss from cultivating this.
                    Let there be Understanding of this mental state of Mutual Joy

                      Friends:
                      Mutual Joy cures all vicious Envy and Jealousy!


                      The dear companion can be the proximate cause for Mutual Joy, where one
                      rejoices in another being's success... One thus rejoicing in others fortune
                      is called a 'boon companion', for he is constantly glad: He laughs first and

                      speaks afterward! So he should be the first to be pervaded with gladness.
                      Or on seeing a dear person being happy, cheerful and glad, mutual joy can
                      be aroused thus: 'See this being is indeed glad! How good, how excellent!'
                      Just as one would be glad at seeing a dear and beloved person very happy,
                      exactly so does one pervade all other beings in all directions with mutual
                      joy...
                      Rejoicing mutual joy can also be aroused by remembering other's happiness
                      in the past and recollecting the elated joy aspect in this way: 'In the past
                      he
                      had great wealth, a great following and he was always glad'. Or mutual joy
                      can be aroused by apprehending the future glad aspect of his in this way:
                      'In the future he will again enjoy similar success and will go about in gold

                      palanquins, on the backs of elephants or on horseback'. Having thus aroused
                      mutual joy regarding a dear person, one can then direct the very same
                      feeling
                      successively towards a neutral one, and gradually towards any hostile
                      person.
                      Vbh 274, Vism I 316

                      Mutual joy causes Contentment! No mutual joy thus entails Discontentment!
                      Therefore: If being generally dissatisfied, then be happy over other's gains
                      ;-)
                      Secondly: Mutual joy causes all envy and jealousy to evaporate into
                      equanimity!

                      <...>
                      Rejoicing Joy!
                      Have a nice & noble day!

                        Friends:
                        How to train Rejoicing Joy in others Success?


                        When sitting alone, in silence, each early morning, with closed eyes one wishes:
                        May I radiate and meet only never-ending and mutually rejoicing joy!
                        May I & all the various beings on the 31 levels of existence develop and find
                        only celebration and elation in a never-ending mutually rejoicing joy!
                        May I & all beings on the sense-desire, fine-material, and the formless plane
                        develop and encounter this generous, infinite and mutually rejoicing joy!
                        May I & all beings in the front, to the right, the back, the left, and below as
                        above, develop and experience openhearted, sharing, & mutually rejoicing joy!
                        May I and all beings within this city, country, planet and universe always:
                        Be fully aware and deeply mindful of this content and mutually rejoicing joy!
                        Examine all details & aspects of this satisfied and mutually rejoicing joy!
                        Put enthusiastic effort in our praxis of this devoted mutually rejoicing joy!
                        Enjoy enraptured jubilant gladness in this exulting mutually rejoicing joy!
                        Be silenced by the tranquillity of quiet and all smiling mutually rejoicing joy!
                        Be concentrated & absorbed into one-pointedness by genuine rejoicing joy!
                        Dwell in an imperturbable equanimity of pure and mutually rejoicing joy...
                        Yeah! May it be even so, since mutual joy causes the jewel of contentment!



                        Comment: Mutual Joy is the 3rd infinite mental state (Appamaññā):
                        This gradually reduces all envy, jealousy, possessiveness, stinginess, avarice,
                        miserliness, green covetousness and any unhappiness related with all these states.
                        The cause of Mutual Joy in rejoicing in your child's or boon companion's success.
                        This same joy can then be beamed towards all liked, neutral and also hostile beings.
                        Mutual Joy is then the proximate cause of satisfied and fulfilled Contentment...
                        Lack of mutual joy is thus the proximate cause of dissatisfied discontentment...
                        Joined with the 7 links to Awakening it will later cause a formless jhāna...
                        Be happy at all and especially other being's success! Then calm comfort grows!
