Mudita (Spiritual Happiness)
Practicing Santosha calms the mind, there’s a good chance that the next level of happiness Mudita (Spiritual Happiness) will sneak through.
Mudita in its purest form is the joy that comes from out of nowhere, like a message from our deeper self, which has the power to change our state in an instant. It gives rise to feelings, such as gratitude, exaltation, equanimity, and the capacity to see beauty even in things we rarely find beautiful.
Mudita can be cultivated, and it aims much of spiritual practice at generating this kind of joyfulness.
