WHAT IS MUDITA?
CONNECTING SPORTS AND LANGUAGE EDUCATION
MUDITA is a Buddhist word that means “joy” or “happiness at another’s success.”
In Buddhist teachings, MUDITA is one of the four “highest emotions,” alongside love, compassion, and calmness.
MUDITA does not have the same word in English. We have many words with the opposite meaning — envy, jealousy, compassion, pity — but none for feelings of happiness or even enjoyment at another’s success. The closest word might be “pride,” but this is normally related to one’s self.
MUDITA SPORTS is a UK sports and education tech start up company who specialise in connecting language learning to Sports and Entertainment. The team we have built at MUDITA SPORTS to meet this challenge have vast experience in tech, app development and education and represent some of the leading people and companies in their fields. Our GOAL is to promote global understanding through language learning as we believe that sport and entertainment can motivate and inspire all learners, whether they be children or adults, to learn to communicate with others in different languages. This is THE MUDITA SPORTS WAY.
“Sport has the power to change the world, It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down barriers.”
We look forward to you joining us on our journey.
