Mudita - Wikipedia

The opposite of Schadenfreude

The traditional paradigmatic example of this mind-state is the attitude of a parent observing a growing child’s accomplishments and successes. Mudita should not be confounded with pride as a person feeling mudita may not have any interest or direct income from the accomplishments of the other. Mudita is a pure joy unadulterated by self-interest.
