Patanjali encourages us to be delighted in others good fortunes or virtues as a way to develop and maintain calmness of mind.  The practice of cultivating joy is called “Mudita Bhavana.”  These simple affirmations can be repeated to yourself, so that you can first feel joy for yourself, and then feel joy for another person.                              

May I learn to appreciate the happiness and joy I experience.
May the joy I experience continue and grow.
May I be filled with joy and gratitude.
