A Personal Take On Mudita

by Sanghaketu

An infectiously delightful talk by Sanghaketu on the subject of joyful resonance with others (mudita) as part of the 2015 Rainy Season Retreat on the Brahma Viharas, Living In The Mandala. He really gets into his subject here! And his sense and experience of gladness comes across beautifully through laughter and reflection on the boon of good friends.

Talk given in March 2015.

This talk is part of the series Brahma Viharas - Bristol Retreat 2015.
