Aeschylus Teaches Mudita

I have been really struck by how close many of the Ancient Greek philosophers seem to have been to the Dhamma. I can’t decide if this is due to hitherto unacknowledged division of Buddhist ideas into the Mediterranean or simply that bits of the Dhamma are everywhere but it takes a sammasambuddha to put it all together into a path and create a sasana. Whatever the case may be, it’s always refreshing to see great thinkers praising mudita.
