Mudita

This is from an article that talks a lot about Tom Brady’s training regime. In the middle of the article, there is this:

He shares with me a word he learned in Sanskrit, “mudita.” “It’s like, fulfillment in seeing other people fulfilled,” Brady says.

The kindest word I have seen, the opposite of envy, the irritation one feels in seeing other people fulfilled. Does such a word exist in English?
