What is the Pali reference/source of the common mudita chant:
Often, it is said the above "mudita" reflection is an antidote for "envy" or "jealousy"; however the suttas appear to say "mudita" is an antidote for "discontent" ("arati").Sabbe satta
Ma laddhasampattito vigacchantu
May all beings
Not be parted from the good fortune they have attained

Muditaṃ, rāhula, bhāvanaṃ bhāvehi.
For when you meditate on rejoicing any negativity will be given up.
Muditañhi te, rāhula, bhāvanaṃ bhāvayato yā arati sā pahīyissati.

There is discontent, sloth, yawning, sleepiness after eating, and mental sluggishness.
Atthi, bhikkhave, arati tandi vijambhitā bhattasammado cetaso ca līnattaṃ.
