1. The general current word referring to the purely psychological notion of a transitory or temporary feeling of pleasure or delight is yuè 悅 (ant. yùn 慍 "feel intensely dissatisfied with, feel offended by").

2. The equally current lè 樂 (ant. āi 哀 "grief") adds to yuè 悅 the dimensions of practical indulgence, psychological and often philosophical depth, and - very often - a dimension of joy that can be shared and appreciated by others, and that is typically lasting if not permanent. See ENJOY

3. Xǐ 喜 (ant. yōu 憂 "worry") is openly manifested delight, manifested in an individual, visible to all, but not normally of any profound significance.

4. Huān 歡 (ant. bēi 悲 "sadness" and chóu 愁 "worried sadness") refers to sociable temporary high spirits, not only visible to many but normally shared by a group.

5. Kuài 快 refers to momentary elation related to or intense satisfaction with a concrete situation.

6. Xīn 欣 refers to grateful delight in what is designed to gratify one's desires.

7. Yú 娛 is often causative "give pleasure to", and when intransitive the word refers to a mild feeling of well-being and gratification, very close to yú 愉 "mild delight".

8. Yí 怡 refers to a kind of open unhidden dignified satisfaction.

GAUDIUM "proper delight"

LAETITIA "free delight"

265. Cic., Tusc. IV: Cum ratione animus movetur placide, atque constanter, tum illud gaudium dicitur; cum autem inaniter et effuse animus exsultat, tum illa laetitia gestiens, vel nimia dici potest, quam ita definiunt: sine ratione animi elationem.

-- Scripturae... Isaiae XVIII et LVII. Ubi in Vulgat.: [col. 38C] Non est pax imp., dicit Dominus.

]

265. Inter Gaudium et laetitiam. Stoici sic distinguunt: gaudium quippe esse aiunt elationem animi [ Al., animae], in his quae digna sunt exsultantis, laetitiam vero effrenatam animi [ Al., animae] elationem, quae modum nesciat; et in his quoque quae vitio sunt mista laetetur. Unde et Scriptura: Non est gaudium [Al., gaudere] impiis, dicit Dominus.

LAETITIA, EXULTATIO, IUBILATIO

329. In textu et in nota pro varia scriptura est exsultationis. Utrolibet loco videtur reponendum exsultatione. [AREV.]

]

329. Inter Laetitiam et exsultationem. Laetitia est mentis gaudium, exsultatio vero verborum atque membrorum. Rursus exsultatio a jubilatione [ Al., ad jubilationem] distinguitur. Ubi enim verba sufficiunt laetitiae, et lingua idonea est mentis gaudium explicare, exsultatio est. Ubi vero non potest quisque conceptum gaudium verbis annuntiare [ Al., nuntiare], sed ipsam animi effusi [ Al., diffusi] laetitiam in vocem quamdam exsultationis erumpit, jubilatio est.

  • nab.tpsychdelight (in someone N), joy about (something N)
  • nabpsychjoy, delight; delighting openly in people
  • nabbuddhistBUDDH: joy; pleasure (in some Buddhist contexts it can also be interpreted as a basis of delusion; sometimes used syn. with lè 樂 but lè is often interpreted as joy deriving from the five senses whereas xǐ is joy deriving through the process of discrimination of the mental (sixth) consciousness (MULLER). As a technical term xǐ is a rendering of SANSKRIT su-manas, defined as one of the five sensations (shòu 受) and sometimes as one of the twenty two roots (xǐgēn 喜根). According to the Āpídámójù-shělùn 阿毘達磨俱舍論 at the first and second level of meditation the (rather crude) sensation of joy emerges. At the third level this sensation is transformed in the more subtle lè 樂. In many Buddhist scriptures xǐ (especially in the compound huānxǐ 歡喜) is associated with the feeling which is produced when listening to the Buddha掇 teaching. In addition, xǐ occasionally refers to the first stage in the development of a Bodhisattva (huānxǐ dì 歡喜地)
